Steven Badger, a partner in the Dallas office of Zelle, was quoted in a Carrier Management article titled “IAALS Unveils New Protocols for First-Party Insurance Disaster Claims.” 

The article provides an overview of the new, streamlined protocols designed to promote a more efficient exchange of information in first-party insurance claims cases stemming from man-made and natural disasters.

Badger, who participated in the development, says that the new protocols should help both carriers and claims officials do their jobs better in disaster situations.
