MDJW First Friday Webinar - Premises Liability

Jamie Cooper, Presenter

July 22, 2013

Jamie Cooper

Our next First Friday will be held on August 2, 2013 at noon Central Time.  Jamie Cooper, a partner in the Houston office, will present “Premises Liability.”  Premises liability involves the legal responsibilities of property owners and occupiers to prevent injuries to persons on their property.  Property owners are responsible for keeping their property safe and warning visitors of potential hazards.  If they fail to do so, they can be held liable for any injuries that result.  Premises liability claims depend on a number of different factors.  For an adjuster, evaluating premises liability claims begins with understanding what duty the insured property owner owed the injured person, and whether the insured breached that duty.

Ms. Cooper’s background is in general commercial litigation. Her insurance practice focuses on the evaluation and resolution of insurance matters involving coverage disputes, claims handling, and other legal issues of interest to insurers conducting business in Texas. Ms. Cooper provides continuing education courses to carriers on first party coverage as well as courses on compliance with Articles 541 and 542.051 of the Texas Insurance Code. Ms. Cooper is an Adjunct Professor of Property and Casualty Insurance Law at the University of Houston Law Center.

We have applied to the Texas Department of Insurance for one hour of Texas CE credit.  Insurance professionals accredited by the Texas Department of Insurance should have their license number available during the training in order to request credit for the course.
