Houston International Insurance Group (HIIG) announced today that its specialty division, HIIG Construction, is introducing a new Risk Management-Based Insurance Package for the Crane-Rigging & Specialized Transport industries.
A key component for HIIG Construction’s Risk Management is its strategic alliance with the nationally recognized law firm Wilson Elser Moskowitz Edelman & Dicker LLP. This unique feature includes the HIIG Pre-Suit Litigation Containment model to assist policyholders with progressive loss control, claims handling and OSHA compliance.
Kevin Cunningham, President of the HIIG Construction, said “We are excited about our continued growth in the Crane-Rigging & Specialized Transport segments as a direct insurance carrier alternative to the less consistent broker-based programs in today’s marketplace. Uniquely, the risk management features with Wilson Elser and other future service providers will enhance our position as the insurance company of choice for this specialized market segment.”
HIIG offers all lines of insurance through licensed agents and brokers nationwide on an admitted and non-admitted basis.
L. Byron Way, Senior Vice President of HIIG, said “Kevin and his underwriting team bring a wealth of knowledge and experience with risk management for the heavy construction marketplace that will help us expand the specialty products we offer.”
