Insurance Recovery Group, Inc. (IRG)
Insurance Recovery Group, Inc. (IRG) has its roots in the legal and claims disciplines, focusing on the identification and pursuit of claims with various states’ Second Injury Funds (SIF) and Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA). Our Leadership Team is comprised of professionals with a wide range of experience from various segments of the insurance industry, including insurance companies, defense law firms, insurance brokerage firms, and workers’ compensation service firms.
W. Frederick Uehlein, Esq. founded IRG in 1997 as a service company comprised of lawyers who specialize in second injury fund recovery on a contingency basis. As managing partner in his Massachusetts law firm, Mr. Uehlein observed that the traditional system of adjusters’ referring files to his firm, or even the lawyers identifying potential recovery on claims they were handling for defense, was inefficient and missing recovery opportunities. A proactive approach was necessary in order to focus and identify all potential second injury fund claims. From IRG’s second injury fund recovery success in Massachusetts, the practice expanded to a national basis, with over $1.5 billion in recovery for its clients.
Today, IRG identifies and perfects more SIF claims across the country per year than any other organization in the country. Its years of experience in all jurisdictions and focused recovery efforts produce recovery results that continue to exceed client expectations.
