Claim Example for Specified Professions Professional

Office Package

Claims Adjuster: An independent claims adjuster is contracted by an insurance carrier specializing

in Boiler and Machinery coverage to investigate and settle a breakdown of refrigeration equipment

in a meat packing plant. The broken refrigerator serves a full one-third of the plant. The refrigerator

is not fixed for five days, the length of time it takes the claims adjuster to investigate and settle the

claim. $500,000 of inventory is spoiled, and the insured sues the claims adjuster and the insurance

carrier. Although the court finds that the claims adjuster does not owe a duty to the insured and is

found not liable for damages to the insured, the claims adjuster still spends $15,000 defending himself.

In addition, the insurance carrier is threatening legal action.

Human Resources Consultant: A human resources consultant who is a specialist in employment regulations, policies and procedures for East coast companies wins a contract for a company in a small midwestern town. The state in which the company is located recently passed extremely strict legislation requiring that the workplace post a five-step method of reporting and responding to employment discrimination to which management must closely adhere. The human resources consultant is not aware of the change and does not inform the company about the posting requirement. Shortly after the engagement of the human resources consultant is over, five employees sue the company for discrimination. They are demanding $100,000 each and have a very strong case as the five-step method was not followed. The company sues the human resources consultant for negligence.

Management Consultant: A management consultant specializing in distribution efficiency is hired to reduce the cost of distribution for a retail baked goods company. He advises the company to concentrate on baking and packaging, sell the trucking unit, and contract with a trucking company specializing in food distribution, and cut distribution to a 500 mile radius. He works closely with the company to complete the changes by June 30th, the end of the fiscal year. Trucking companies demand more money for the services than first anticipated because of the rising price of gasoline and extended negotiations delay the distribution of the company's flagship product, Independence Day-themed cupcakes. The cupcakes do not arrive in supermarkets in time for the holiday. A rival's similar product capitalizes on the lack of the company's flagship product and thereafter dominates the market in that region. The management consultant is sued for negligence and $100,000 in damages.

Travel Agency: A travel agency counts among its clients a growing Manhattan software firm which specializes in billing software. After two years in development, the president of the software firm is finally ready to personally unveil software which she believes is superior to the market’s leader. The travel agent arranges the flights and hotels for the firm’s president and three software developers to attend the annual national conference of billing information technology specialists in Hawaii; however, the agent fails to inform the foursome that a week earlier their flight had been rerouted to leave from LaGuardia instead of Kennedy airport. As a result, they miss their allotted time for the presentation, and their product never gets the initial boost it needs. The software firm sues the travel agent for $250,000 for a loss of business opportunity.
