Description

More than $14.7 million was paid for professional liability claims on behalf of counselors during the most recent 5-year analysis. The data suggests the distribution of closed claims has more than doubled as compared to the previous dataset. This presentation will summarize findings from the new HPSO/CNA counselor claim report highlighting top areas of loss and discuss actual counselor claims in an interactive manner to identify whether the involved counselor managed risks properly.

  • Learn the leading allegations made against counselors in malpractice lawsuits and Board complaints.
  • Define the costs to defend counselors in malpractice lawsuits and Board complaints.
  • Identify risk control strategies counselors can incorporate into their practice to protect the well-being of clients and minimize liability risk.
