Ever thought about starting your own firm? Ever wonder how your firm manages the risks of practicing structural engineering?  Ever wonder how to address liability claims once they come up?  This presentation will provide structural engineers with a basic knowledge of the most critical components of professional liability insurance to help manage risk and improve profitability. Specifically, this presentation will help structural engineers understand the following:

  • How to avoid an uncovered claim.
  • Minimize the effect of a claim should one occur. 
  • Reduce the costs of professional liability.

Benefits and knowledge our members can expect to take away from the presentation:

  • A good, basic understanding of the most important things to know about professional liability insurance policies.
  • Learn how to reduce the likelihood of having an uncovered claim.
  • Learn how to reduce your expenses and therefore improve your firm’s profitability by being proactive with your renewal.
