Crisis Response for Insurance Professionals: How to Assist an Insured’s Response to a Crisis

Rick Pitts

Many insureds, particularly small commercial insureds, look to their insurance producers for risk management tips and advice in a variety of circumstances. This session will begin with a look at the typical “crisis.” We’ll then take a look at the insurance implications or the role of the insurance professional in responding to a crisis. It uses the examples of Active Shooter / Active Assailant insurance coverage and also Products Recall Insurance to illustrate the dependency between crisis response and insurance risk management.
