Preventing and Defending Bodily Injury Claims in the Security Industry
Security professionals are often the first line of defense against criminal activity, as well as the injuries and property damage that follows. Unfortunately, that also means security professionals are very often the first to be blamed in a civil lawsuit arising out of the criminal activity. This webinar will highlight key concepts to be utilized in preventing, investigating, and defending lawsuits brought against security professionals in these instances. These concepts will include insurance coverage issues, common factual theories of liability, preserving evidence, and defense strategies.
