Liability Insurance Practices

Course Overview

Liability Insurance Practices is a course that provides a broad understanding of the main issues involved in liability claims. It examines the claim representative’s role in determining coverage and legal liability for third-party claims, including those affected by homeowners policies and commercial general liability (CGL) coverage. Claim investigation, damages evaluation, and settlement practices are explained in detail, as is the management of claims that are litigated. Particular attention is paid to specific claim issues involving the most common types of liability claims, auto liability and premises liability. Throughout, the course alerts claim representatives to potential problem areas and provides suggestions for dealing with some of the more complicated claims.

Claim representatives should always refer to specific policy wording if they have questions about how a policy applies to a particular claim, and should consult with claim managers or legal counsel about any questionable matters.
