Funderburk Funderburk Courtois, LLP is an approved provider of adjuster continuing education credit through the Texas Department of Insurance. Our most popular, and most practical, seminar for adjusters is the The Insurance Adjuster's Essential Guide for Handling Texas Claims. This seminar is Texas Department of Insurance approved for two hours of adjuster continuing education credit in the area of ethics and consumer protection for all types of adjusters.
Texas has very specific laws regarding how insurance carriers should be handling claims. Failure to follow these requirements may lead the insurance carrier into owing penalties in addition to the original value of the claim. Mark Courtois applies his 30 years of insurance defense background to give adjusters what they need to know to handle Texas insurance claims correctly. Topics covered in this seminar and Guide include: the Prompt Payment of Claims Act, bad faith, unfair settlement practices, subrogation, policy limits demands, and the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act. Special worksheets are presented to assist adjusters in responding timely to the time deadlines of first party claims, the time deadlines of responding to an insurance code or deceptive trade practice demand, and policy limits demands.
