Claims Roundtable: Major Gas and Electric Incidents
Thursday, June 4, 2020 | East Rutherford, NJ

Gas and electric incidents can have a negative impact on the finances and public image of a utility. The company may face scrutiny, criticism and financial loss whether or not it did, or failed to do, anything that contributed to the event. While accident investigators often trace triggering acts or omissions back to third parties, improperly trained independent contractors or victims themselves, the utility will be involved in the aftermath. Our panel of speakers will discuss managing incidents when they occur, implementing internal and external procedures to minimize risks, and dealing with resulting suits and liability issues.
