Adjusting & Controlling Multiple Widespread Condominium Losses

2016 Large Loss Conference


Damage to a residence is a major, often once-in-a-lifetime, event for the people who are displaced. Damage to multiple residences, such as in a catastrophic condominium loss, often requires the skills of a large loss adjuster to help in the recovery.

"Adjusting & Controlling Multiple Widespread Condominium Losses," is one of the workshops offered at the 2016 Large Loss Conference, hosted by the Property & Liability Resource Bureau in Chicago October 4 to 6.

The workshop will review and dissect a scenario involving such a loss. It will be led by Kenneth R. Gilvary, Branch Manager, Haag Engineering Company, Mike Rains, Liability and Property Claims Manger, Texas Municipal League, and Ben Siebert, Executive General Adjuster, ICA, LP.

The workshop will address:

  • Key issues to consider when handling widespread damage claims on multiple condominium losses;
  • Working with experts, legal counsel, and other resources to evaluate risk and resolve condominium claim disputes;
  • Evaluating proven techniques to organize and control condominium claims with multiple perils and multiple coverage levels; and
  • Recognizing ethical complications that may arise with large-scale condominium losses.

The workshop is approved for adjuster continuing education credit in Florida, North Carolina, Oklahoma, and Texas. It has also been approved for educational credit for both CPCU and RPA designees.

The workshops offered at the Large Loss Conference are adjuster-led and encourage active participation. They provide a unique opportunity to learn from and with many of the insurance industry's leading experts.

Classes are offered in three tracks:

  • Commercial Lines, property claims
  • Personal Lines, property claims
  • Casualty Claims

The Large Loss Conference will be held at the Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile. Senior claim professionals and service providers from across the nation will meet for professional education and development. They will evaluate a variety of large loss claim scenarios through workshops. They will share ideas and adjustment strategies with large loss professionals from across the country. They will also be able to network with large loss adjusters and service providers from across hundreds of disciplines and specialty areas.

Complete information regarding the workshops and registration is available here.
