Risk Management

Responsibilities

The County’s Risk Management functions are administered by the County Attorney’s Office. Assistant County Attorney Chris Ambrosio supervises the Risk Management team. Team members work together to manage, assess, and defend liability and tort claims made against the County. The team analyzes sources of potential liability and works to eliminate and/or reduce the County’s exposure to claims. The team monitors insurance carrier counsel’s defense of such claims and manages the associated costs. Risk staff reviews every contract to ensure the County has proper insurance coverage in its agreements and for its projects. The team also works with members of the public to assist in resolving legitimate accident claims involving County property, operations or employees.

The department also:

  • Acts upon accident reports
  • Handles any insurance payments as assigned
  • Insures all employees while on county property and/or utilizing county property, such as heavy equipment, vehicles, and machinery
  • Investigates all accidents
  • Maintains a contract database

Mission Statement
