MKA Presents at the PLRB Claims Conference &
Insurance Expo

David Hooper and Robert McMichael recently presented at the PLRB Claims Conference & Insurance Expo in San Antonio, Texas.

David Hooper, our in-house Microbiologist, discussed the identification of potentially hazardous materials that may be encountered during a loss.  His presentation examined remediation and abatement project practices and challenges through loss scenarios.

Robert McMichael shared his civil / geotechnical expertise and engaged participants on how to recognize various geologic conditions that may result in a geotechnical or geologic loss, the conditions that cause them and how they contribute to property loss claims.

Interested in MKA providing a presentation that will earn you continuing education credit?  Please contact Heather Rabenberg.
