GB Healthcare, formerly known as Western Litigation, provides healthcare professional liability claims and risk management consultative solutions to lower your cost of risk for healthcare professional and general liability.
We partner with you to be an extension of your team, working in collaboration with you to deliver real results without surprises. We have worked where you work and have faced the challenges that you face.
With more than 100 years of combined industry experience, our team brings a unique combination of insights drawn from all sides of the insurance, legal, and compliance spectrum. We are more than you expect.
Since inception, our proactive management of litigation, claims, and risk management processes are why our results and team stand apart in the market. We more than manage your claims we take expert control from start to finish — advising you on the best next steps in and out of the courtroom.
Our multi-disciplinary approach capitalizes on state-of-the-art technology and deep experience in law and insurance. GB Healthcare has developed a proprietary RMIS platform called Genesis, which is used by our professionals to manage claims and used by our clients to obtain full visibility of their losses.
We translate the challenges you are facing into solutions that have real impact. We effectively evaluate and manage outside counsel through our deep legal experience, and we independently evaluate our clients' claims — rather than rely solely on outside counsel to assess exposure.
From negotiating favorable settlements, to implementing proactive risk mitigation tools, we are a complete solution.
How we achieve stronger outcomes
Through comprehensive, turnkey claims management, project-based claims needs, and risk management solutions, our team partners with yours to address the challenges your business is facing.
