Since 1986 the TBS team has
been committed to providing the highest level of service to international ship
owners, domestic operators and their underwriters. Services offered include traditional claims investigation,
management and litigation supervision, along with third party administration for
underwriters, catastrophe claims handling, cost control and environmental
restoration. Our highly qualified
team of adjusters, attorneys, accounting and computer personnel have unique
experience in providing personalized service to our clients.
These skills are available to assist our clients meet the challenges
arising from today’s uncertain and litigation oriented insurance climate.
TBS clients include the West of England Ship Owners Mutual Insurance
Association, for whom we act as General Commercial Correspondent in the United
States, the Water Quality Insurance Syndicate, Kemper Insurance Companies, and
other underwriters, operators, terminals and law firms.
The most unique areas of expertise developed in recent years are third
party claims administration and the handling of claims arising from catastrophic
losses. As losses become
increasingly more complex TBS is often responsible for not only claims
resolution, but also overall administration, cost control, financial reporting
and environmental restoration. TBS has handled several major incidents
throughout the United States, including the Tampa Bay, Florida and Point Judith,
Rhode Island oil spills, and the Bright Field collision with a dockside hotel
and shopping mall in New Orleans, Louisiana. Each of these losses has necessitated the handling of
personal injury, property damage, business interruption and other type claims,
and ultimately contributed to TBS’ ability to put in place on short notice the
infrastructure required to handle substantial numbers of claims and the
associated costs. These systems,
along with our overall breadth of traditional day to day claims handling and
financial experience, allow TBS to provide our clients a responsive,
professional and personalized service in the most cost-effective fashion.
