This introductory course is great for anyone who needs to understand the basis for liability insurance.  An overview of the legal system will be presented, followed by a discussion of the two main types of liability that can be imposed on individuals and organizations.  As liability stems from a failure to uphold a duty under the law, we'll discuss the various duties the law imposes.  Finally, we will cover how liability insurance works to protect insureds from liability claims.

By the end of this course, you should be able to:

  • List and define the types of legal liability.
  • Evaluate and describe the legal duties of individuals and organizations.
  • Explain how liability insurance protects against claims involving legal liability.
