  • Excess Coverage & Nuclear Verdicts: Michael Langford walks you through recent nuclear verdict scenarios, why cases go to trial and create potential nuclear verdict exposures and how they’ve impacted the transportation industry. Michael helps you understand what is at stake for your company and the importance of excess coverage in current times as well as what factors trucking companies should consider when choosing limits.

  • Transportation Contract Considerations: Greg Feary walks you through reviewing shipper/broker contracts properly so you realize and understand what you are signing and that you know if you’re sharing limits, additional insured, etc. He also shares what insurance implications could arise in the event of an accident. Tackling indemnities in contracts, cargo loss and damage liability, anti-indemnity statutes, insurance considerations, customer contract issues, brokering under carrier contracts.
