Common Question – Which Side, Plaintiff or Defense, Does CompuWeather Work For?

Contributed by Kim Cuozzo, Marketing Associate, Forensic Weather Marketing Team

Sometimes a client wonders if we only do work for plaintiff attorneys, or only do work for insurance defense attorneys. The answer is that we can work for either side and we do typically work for both sides (but obviously only 1 at a time on a single case). We will represent whoever gets in touch with us first and engages us to work on a case . We don’t have a bias towards one side or another and are comfortable working on either side. When our meteorologists perform work on a case, it is not relevant to them to know which side we are working for, but simply to answer the questions at hand in an accurate and unbiased manner. No matter which side of a case we are working for, our weather conclusions do not change. Knowing which side we are working for is only important when we initially take on a case since it is part of our conflict checking process. Our conflict checking process requires multiple internal checks prior to us ever commencing work on a case to make sure we are not already working for the other side. On an average week we probably decline work on 3-7 cases due to conflicts determined in our engagement process.
