In personal injury insurance, there is limited data and information available to insurers when it comes to prescription medication for injured people.

How do we help?
The road to recovery shouldn’t be taken alone. We see it as our collective responsibility to help reduce the rate of addiction, secondary injury and death from prescription medications. We partner with insurers and physicians to ensure the system doesn’t unintentionally let injured people down.
