AE Blog - Creating a Culture of Professional Liability Issues Awareness
The good news is that we don’t have to think about professional liability claims very often because, for the most part, claims are fairly rare. The bad news is that when a claim occurs, we have to think about it a lot. Almost always, when the claim occurs, part of our thinking includes what we could have done to prevent the claim.
John M. Lowe, Jr., P.E. firmly believes that having a frequent reminder about professional liability loss considerations can be very helpful in avoiding problems that we just don’t think about until there is a claim. John will be sending out a weekly e-mail series of brief professional liability loss prevention topics that you can share with your staff to raise the
level of awareness to potential problems.
The first topic addresses the need to include a clear Scope of Work and Standard of Care in your contracts. It’s all about “expectation management” when it comes to contracting for professional services, which is why the Scope of Work and Standard of Care were chosen as the first topic. Many of the future topics will be focused on doing as much as we can to create and manage contracts that will result in clients having realistic expectations of
what your services will provide. Please contact John if you would like to be
added to this email list or receive a copy of the first topic.
