AgentsofAmerica.ORG (AOA) announced today that it will publish “E&O Loss Control for Insurance Agents and Brokers.” This E-Book which has 26 distinct chapters represents a collaborative effort by more than 25 top E&O insurance attorneys and experts from across the country. Colleen M. Murphy, Esq., Partner and Chair of Goldberg Segalla’s Insurance Agents and Brokers E&O Practice Group, is the editor of the book and creator of its Table of Contents.
“I am happy to work with AgentsofAmerica.ORG and with this country’s leading E&O attorneys to provide insurance agents and brokers and their E&O insurers with a first-of-its-kind cutting edge loss control and risk management tools,” says Ms. Murphy. “This Loss Control initiative is what AOA is all about, bringing the best talent and resources together to create the nation's first risk management initiative geared in helping agents reduce claims, as well as provide them with a practical guide to their agency operations. The expectation is that we will be able to create a CE component thus making the content even more valuable to both the agents and their carriers."
The book provides E&O loss control techniques and a compendium of the relevant law from the quoting process up through claims reporting. It also features special chapters on licensing, security and privacy, social media and placements in the London market, as well as best practices check lists for hands-on use at the agencies and brokerages. AOA is in the process of partnering with a third-party provider to obtain continuing education accreditation for the project, which will serve as a platform for the creation of E&O loss control webinars and seminars.
“This book will be an essential tool on the desk of every agent and broker who needs access to guidance regarding their potential legal liability. It will fill a need long apparent to those of us who supervise the legal affairs of insurance brokers on a day to day basis,” said David Paige, General Counsel of Sterling & Sterling, Inc.
