2017 Flood & Insurance Webinar

CLE Credit: 1 Hour General CLE, 1 Hour Civil Trial Certification

This webinar will discuss the history of the National Flood Insurance Program and, more significantly, will explain the essentials of handling a flood insurance claim for your client.

It is believed that there will be a very significant amount of flood insurance claims as a result of Hurricane Irma, and the goal of this webinar is to have the basic knowledge necessary to recognize a flood claim and be able to successfully file it and recover on it on behalf of the client.

Don’t be afraid of flood claims—once you understand the basics, you should be prepared to become one of the few attorneys who know how to prosecute these cases.
The Flood Insurance Claims Experts: 

Samuel W. Bearman is a sole practitioner in Pensacola, Florida, who has dedicated his practice to representing plaintiffs who have been injured or suffered property damage for almost thirty nine years. 

Mr. Bearman first handled hurricane and flood claims when Hurricanes Erin and Opal struck the northwest Florida coast. Since then, he has handled hundreds of claims resulting from numerous hurricanes which have struck the gulf coast. Mr. Bearman is a frequent speaker on the topic of hurricane and insurance claims and has been published on the topic of hurricane insurance claims.

Dennis Abbott actively practiced law in Alabama for 27 years until relocating to northwest Florida in 2001. 

He established a consulting company to provide facts, information, and reference material for the benefit of disaster victims, adjusters, contractors and legal professionals. Mr. Abbott has worked with Mr. Bearman since 2005 on hurricane claims spending most of his time on flood insurance claims. 

He co-authored "Your Guide to Handling Flood Insurance Claims" with Mr. Bearman and has co-authored articles published in the New Jersey Law Journal (April, 2013) and the American Bar Association Journal, State and Local Law News (Spring, 2014).

Why do so many people get so confused whenever they have to deal with flood insurance and flood claims?

It is precisely that question that prompted Attorney Samuel Bearman and Dennis Abbott to write the book, Your Guide to Handling Flood Insurance Claims. This is the only book that explains the flood insurance system and how to successfully handle a claim in simple, layman's terms.

Once you read the book, you will be able to fully handle a flood claim on your own, or know exactly what to look for when hiring someone to handle the claim for you.
