(1) As to casualty insurance transacted by it, each insurer shall maintain at all
times reserves in an amount estimated in the aggregate to provide for payment of all
losses and claims incurred, whether reported or unreported, which are unpaid and for
which the insurer may be liable, and to provide for the expenses of adjustment or
settlement of losses and claims. The reserves shall be computed in accordance with regulations from time to time
made by the commissioner, after due notice and hearing, upon reasonable consideration
of the ascertained experience and the character of such kind of business for the purpose
of adequately protecting the insured and the solvency of the insurer.
(2) Whenever the loss and loss expense experience of the insurer show that reserves,
calculated in accordance with such regulations, are inadequate, the commissioner may
require the insurer to maintain additional reserves.
(3) The commissioner may, by regulation, prescribe the manner and form of reporting
pertinent information concerning the reserves provided for in this section.
