When a lawyer is retained to defend an insured person, this should be documented in writing by the lawyer, the adjuster and the insured to be defended.
Before an insurer retains a lawyer to represent an insured to defend an insured who has been sued for damages, the injured party must be sure that the lawyer is competent to defend the insured. This can be achieved by participating in a trial conducted by the lawyer where the claims staff can evaluate the lawyer's competence at the trial. If this option is not available, claims personnel should seek recommendations from other professionals who have retained the lawyer previously or the insurance company's list of approved defense attorneys who have been evaluated by the insurance company's management.
If the lawyer is if the insurer retains for the first time, the insurer should receive an engagement letter from the lawyer stating the terms of custody and signed by the lawyer, the claims staff and the insured. If the lawyer or law firm has an ongoing relationship with the insurer, only the defender will need to sign an engagement letter.
