There for You when You Have a Loss

Reflecting a commitment to exemplary service, CSDSIP strives to handle every claim in a comprehensive and timely fashion.

To achieve this goal, we respond to each claim by:

  • Evaluating the legal liability

  • Assessing losses and damages

  • Negotiating settlements

  • Obtaining a full release of all claims on behalf of the Member and any employees, as necessary.

  • Minimize damages.

  • Eliminate your need to work with anyone who is making a claim against you or the Member.
