Quick Overview

Local governments deal with many issues, including unique liability exposures, that most businesses don't have to deal with. Some provide fire protection services and law enforcement services, not to mention the local school district and other departments. Each of which creates a different exposure, which needs to be addressed in their insurance program. Traditionally, many governmental agencies enjoyed a level of immunity from liability, but that concept of sovereign immunity has changed significantly over time. Join us as Brennan Quintus brings us his session on local government liability and deepen your understanding of this part of the insurance landscape.
