 Special Note

Please note that all assignments to approved defense counsel must be made by the Litigation Manager.

ERMA's Memorandum of Coverage requires that all ERMA matters must be handled by one of the law firms on ERMA's Approved Defense Panel in order for any defense costs to be credited against the member's self-insured retention. All litigated ERMA claims must be handled by an approved panel member for ERMA to defend and indemnify the member. The assignments are made on a claim by claim basis. If a member has a preference for a particular firm/attorney on the Approved Defense Panel, please contact ERMA's Litigation Manager to discuss the assignment.
