Course Description

Professional Liability Insurance veteran Paul Dorroh provides information of vital importance to every practitioner. This program covers all the basics about why and how to purchase malpractice insurance, how to best purchase it and how to properly manage it.

Why buy malpractice insurance? Statistics indicate that the frequency of claims averages about 4% - similar to personal auto insurance, so it is not that unlikely to encounter a claim over the course of a legal career. You need to protect yourself, your clients ? and client relationships, avoid embarrassing disclosure of lack of coverage and meet specific insurance requirements of clients.

How to Buy: Learn the difference between use of a broker or buying direct, how to evaluate insurers, how to compare quotes and coverage, how to complete an application and how to choose limits of liability and coverage. Learn how to manage your policy when there are changes in your practice, how to report ?claims,? how to handle renewals and possible availability of Tail Coverage.
