Brief Video Educates Your Clients on UM/UIM

NEW Risk Management Webinar Rebroadcast - May 29
Big "I" Professional Liability
Is Your Website Doing More Harm than Good? was one of Big "I" Professional Liability's best-attended sessions in recent years. Due to its popularity, and because insurance agency website content continues to plague agency owners during errors & omissions claims, Big "I" Professional Liability and Swiss Re Corporate Solutions will rebroadcast Is Your Website Doing More Harm than Good? on Wednesday, May 29 at 2 p.m. ET.

Websites and other online marketing materials, including mission and vision statements, are turning insignificant events into significant E&O claims due to the language used on agency websites. For example, terms and phrases such as "experts" and "we will address all your insurance needs" can increase the standard of care an agency owes to a customer.
