Greg Raab, Director of Consulting Operations for Adjusters International, was recently interviewed by Legal Management magazine regarding business recovery in the wake of a major disaster. In response to questions about how a law firm can be prepared ahead of time for a major catastrophe, Raab stresses the importance of having a comprehensive inventory of assets completed, having pre-disaster contracts in place with emergency response companies, and having a implementable recovery plan in place.

“Most companies think, ‘I have an idea of what my assets are, based on my accounting software,’ but have proof that insurance companies can see — here are photos of our desks, filing cabinets, ergonomic chairs and IT equipment,” Raab says. He also suggests creating a claims-management team and singular point person before disaster strikes. “When multiple sources are contacting the insurance company, [the firm is] not in control of how timely the information it’s getting is or how the company is interpreting it.”

Additionally, your firm’s public relations professionals should play a key role in the wake of a disaster, according to Raab. “It’s going to be very important to let your clients know immediately that you’re still there, still doing everything you’re contractually obligated to do for them,” he says. “You don’t want clients to think about looking to do business elsewhere because you’ve got too much stuff going on.”

The ‘hip’ or ‘in’ fad is not necessarily always the safest choice. Insure.com’s Marjorie Musick uncovers some hidden dangers in the article, “The 5 safest choices for 10 important decisions.” While most would think an eco-friendly, subcompact car would be an economical and safe option, they would be proven wrong. In fact, there are many perceptions that are inaccurate when determining what is safe and what is not for the general public. For instance, most would not think that fruits carry, on average, “21 percent of food-borne illnesses” over all other food groups.

The public should not only be concerned for their general safety concerning issues such as food choices, and large purchases such as vehicles, but also when deciding what city in which to live. John Marini, COO and Vice President of Adjusters International, offers his insights in regards to the cities safest from natural disasters. Within this article, Marini states that “Natural disasters can be very costly for homeowners. Knowing which cities are the most likely to be affected will help them properly insure their property and be protected from resulting expensive insurance claims.” In the event of buying a home or relocating, it is important to look at what natural disasters tend to affect that area and plan accordingly.
