Our next “First Friday” seminar will be held this Friday, March 1st, at noon Central.  Kaitlin Huber, senior counsel in the firm’s Houston office, will present “Making Sense of the Duty to Investigate.”  Everyone knows an insurer owes a duty to investigate, but when the scope of every investigation is dependent on the facts of each individual claim, the meaning the “duty to investigate” can be perplexing.  This free one hour course will examine the investigative parameters outlined by Texas courts with an emphasis on both best practices and ways to avoid subsequent criticism by plaintiff’s counsel of one’s investigative efforts.  The course will also examine the consequences of claims investigations which are perceived to be deficient.

 Ms. Huber is a member of the firm’s Insurance Practice Group with an emphasis on the defense of coverage disputes and bad-faith allegations.

 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 adjuster number available during the training in order to request credit for the course.
