OTRP Member – you MUST accept this disclaimer in order to proceed with a Pre-Defense Matter.

Disclaimer: Pre-Defense Services paid for by the Pool are NOT a grant of coverage under the Ohio Transit Risk Pool program. The Pool reserves the right to deny coverage to any claim, including any issue handled with Pre-Defense Services. The Pre-Defense Services are provided only as a Risk Management Tool to help the Member prevent litigation or help the Member better prepare for unavoidable litigation. Ultimately, it is in the best interest of the Pool and its Member to resolve issues quickly and appropriately. Pre-Defense Services will be paid directly by the Pool, but are limited to $1,000 per request.

Your organization will be solely responsible for paying all Pre-Defense Services costs that exceed $1,000.
