Early reporting and active involvement by the institution and UE aressential for successful claims resolution. An institution that fails to meet the reporting responsibilities outlined in its insurance policy risks denial of coverage or loss of full benefits. Reporting considerations vary with the type of policy.
Our K-12 coverage offers a unique approach to insuring independent schools, as well as school pools, districts, and charter schools.
For independent schools, UE provides critical coverage to address issues of top concern, including athletic injuries, lab incidents, sexual molestation, and vehicle accidents.
For public schools, UE's coverage agreements combine excess general liability, auto liability, and school board leaders' liability. Our policies address the specific concerns of school districts and boards of education, providing coverage for the school, trustees, superintendents, officers, employees, student teachers, volunteers and, in some circumstances, students and interns.
UE extensively studies claims trends, legislative issues, and the education environment to address evolving liability and risk management issues. Developing personal relationships with our members enables us to provide specific solutions for public schools, independent schools, and charter schools.
Our risk management professionals are only an email or phone call away. They welcome inquiries on topics critical to K-12 schools and have recently provided guidance on school security, managing concussions, and suspension policies.
Risk management resources are an invaluable part of coverage with UE and are included as part of a school policy. Through EduRisk, brokers and members have 24/7 access to hundreds of education-specific multimedia risk management resources.
