August Webinar - Insurance & PI Claims

9 July 2019

Join the ACA and Planned Cover on 14 August for a special update on the state of the Australian insurance industry.

There’s never been a more important time for architects and other building professionals to understand the state of the insurance industry and the best way to avoid professional indemnity claims.

Join the ACA and Planned Cover for a special presentation on the state of the insurance industry in Australia from Victorian State Manager Laurence Gottlieb. Webinar attendees will also hear from National Claims Manager Adele Monaco, who will offer a selection of professional indemnity insurance claims case studies.

These case studies will highlight how the negligence claim came about, the impact (the outcome and who was affected), how it was resolved and how to avoid such a claim. This state-of-affairs update and real-life claims examples will provide valuable insights as to the impact a ‘negligence claim’ can have on a practice and how fairly innocent lapses in processes have the potential to turn into costly and lengthy claims.
