About Bruce Wright

Bruce is a defector from the major “corporate” environment, having spent over two decades in commercial insurance working in claims, sales, and service management roles with a major insurer and an international brokerage before joining Synebar Solutions. His first work with utilities was as a laborer for PSE&G, and he first encountered RECs as a member of  Lorain-Medina REC in Ohio. Shortly thereafter, he was managing claims for over 500 RECs for Nationwide Insurance. He joined Synebar Solutions in 1998 and now provides safety and loss prevention support to members of the Hurtado & Associates Power Program. He grew up in a utility household and has worked with electrical distribution systems and G&Ts in a variety of roles since 1979.

Claims Management

Hurtado & Associates, Inc. has quarterly claims and litigation meetings to review all claims in excess of $25,000.

We have a dedicated legal council to review and assist in the management and litigation of all potential catastrophe losses, regardless of liability.

Our goal is to provide exceptional claims management and oversight. By doing so, we provide an enhanced knowledge base for each of our clients.

Dedicated Claims Facility

Unlike many insurance carriers, the HA/Zurich Power Distribution Insurance Program has developed and implemented a dedicated claims facility.

When a loss occurs, our clients will have the opportunity to talk to qualified adjusters that are dedicated to this program.

Assigning dedicated adjusters to this program enables both the adjuster and cooperative management to build a positive long term working relationship.

Each adjuster has been trained to communicate openly and often with each of our insureds regarding the status of open claims and when to advise our clients when a major claim is closed.
