Addressing Issues with Public Adjusters and Loss Consultants


Time: 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT

This seminar is designed as a panel discussion to address the duties of public adjusters, as well as the development of “loss consultants” involved in adjusting property insurance losses. It will discuss the statutory obligations of adjusters, including the additional ethical considerations required of a public adjuster. It is designed to provide a comparison of Florida’s insurance laws and the adjusters’ obligations to other jurisdictions. Additional discussion about recent changes in the insurance code, as well as potential violations of regulatory, civil, and criminal law which may result from the breach of the duties by loss consultants or adjusters. Further, the information will focus on discussing strategies to promptly resolve issues or prepare SIU referrals to the various Departments overseeing the regulation of the industry.
