Hotline can help resolve issues before they become claims
NEW YORK — In this volatile litigation environment, it seems that any type of error or omission by an insurance agent or broker can result in a claim or lawsuit. Quick access to legal resources can help in resolving issues before they become claims and prevent errors that can result in claims.
This was the reasoning behind the launch of a confidential, free risk management hotline. The service is offered through Freedom Specialty, a Scottsdale Insurance Company operation; and is available exclusively to policyholders written through Freedom Specialty’s insurance agent/broker professional liability program with Lee & Mason Financial Services, Inc.
“Our job is more than just providing financial protection in the event of a claim. We also provide peace of mind,” John Lopes, Freedom Specialty vice president said. “One way we are trying to do that is through this hotline. It gives our policyholders access to real people who can give them free, professional consultations quickly.”
In addition to the consultation service, a free library of risk management articles, alerts, and a best practices checklist are also available.
