Tips on How to Avoid Errors & Omissions Claims

Presented by Globe Midwest Ethan Gross, JD, and Senior Vice President of Business Development Stuart Dorf, JD, this two-hour continuing education program is designed for property insurance agents and brokers. Divided into two sessions, the first session focuses on the legal liability agents and brokers can protect themselves with when underwriting insurance, illustrated by real-life scenarios. Session two describes how agents and brokers protect themselves against errors & omissions claims and features a “living checklist” that attendees can incorporate into the risk management practices of their agencies.
Seminars for Professional Services
Length: 50 mins
The rapid evolution of the cannabis industry continues to expand as more states enact legislation to allow recreational and medicinal marijuana production and sales. The increase in the size and scope of production has spawned a real estate boom in many states where either new, state-of-the-art production facilities are being built, or older properties are being rehabbed for this use. As with most commercial properties, it is important for owners, operators and investors alike to protect their property and businesses against physical and economic loss through proper insurance coverages.
Moreover, when it is time to make a claim, most policyholders soon realize their insurance agents are not involved in the claim process, the claims process is not straightforward and the burden of proof is on the policyholder to “substantiate” their loss! It seems like a recipe for disaster.
Learn about best practices on a “pre-loss” and “post-loss” basis, such as:
- Understanding what questions to ask when searching for property insurance and how to educate yourself on selecting the right insurance agent
- Requirements that most insurance policies place on the policyholder
- Understanding and how to navigate the insurance claims process in the event your property or business suffers a flood, fire or other insurable event.

What Our Clients Have to Say
“I would like to thank you and Globe for the work you did on our behalf, following the terrible fire that destroyed our restaurant. I had no idea how much research, documentation and negotiation would be involved in seeking and reaching a just settlement from the insurers—but I have one now. Just thinking of how I might have attempted this effort on my own gives me real pause, because I really don’t think I could have done it. Without doubt, I would not have achieved the numbers that you were able to deliver. I simply wouldn’t have known how.”
Vice President at Costa Azul Bar
“I was very pleased with the work that Globe Midwest Adjusters International has done for the District. They were very thorough in their research of the loss to present to the insurance company to counter the insurance company’s offer. The District has gotten an agreement with the insurance company for the loss on the building which ended up $1,300,000 larger than what the insurance company originally offered to the District.”
Executive Director of Business Services
“Your knowledge and attention to detail have been a huge benefit in settling our claims due to fires, hurricanes, and wind storm damage to several of our multi-family apartments throughout the country. Your professionalism and negotiation skills are second to none and are to be commended. Your knowledge of the insurance companies practices of minimizing claims and dragging out settlements, have afforded us expedient and higher settlements than we could attain on our own”
Senior Vice President
