In thinking about claims professionals, I am reminded of Giles Corey, the strong, determined old man who was accused of being a witch in Old Salem. His tormentors tortured him by placing heavy stones, one at a time, on a board covering his chest. Despite the excruciating weight of the pain, Giles did not betray his friends or betray his own character. He was defiant to the end. As he was being crushed, his last words called to his tormentors were a request to add “more weight”.
