There are a number of considerations in deciding whether to manage your own claim activity:
- Class action cases can drag on in the courts for years. Keeping up with developments, changes and requests from the court, along with deadline extensions present the risk of “losing track” of the case.
- Assigning an employee the responsibility for managing your case creates the risk of “losing track” of the case as a result of employee turnover – especially in highly active job markets.
- Most employees are fully engaged in the day-to-day demands of their jobs – a condition that makes keeping track of a case which may only need their attention “from time to time” difficult and again, subject to “losing track” of the case.
- There is also the question of whether monitoring, tracking and complying with the changes and decisions that can occur during the settlement claims process is the highest and best use of your valuable time, skills and resources.
