About the Book
New Guidebook Covers All Aspects of Property, Casualty Insurance
Karin A. Fleischhaker Draws on Years of Experience in Insurance Industry to Offer Guidance, Advice
OCALA, Fla.– “It is interesting to find that attitudes about the insurance industry have not changed throughout the years,” Karin A. Fleischhaker writes in the introduction to her new guidebook, The Savvy Businessperson’s Guide To Property & Casualty Insurance: Applications and Practices
(published by AuthorHouse
). “We tend to condemn our insurance agents for not providing us service, but, in most cases, we, as business owners, are unaware of what services we may require. Ultimately, such lack of understanding – and communications – may result in bad feelings and possible lawsuits against your insurance agent or insurance company.”
The Savvy Businessperson’s Guide To Property & Casualty Insurance seeks to eliminate some of the misunderstandings surrounding the insurance industry, its agents and its clients. Designed for business owners, controllers and anyone desiring information about the industry, Fleischhaker offers a simple, thorough reference guide for coverage issues relating to many types of insurance, including: Liability, Property, Inland and Worldwide Marine, Foreign, Flood, Automobile, Truckers, Garage and Dealership Liability, Boiler and Machinery, Bonds, Workers Compensation and Umbrella/Bumbershoot and Excess Coverage. While her information is backed by years of experience and detailed research, Fleischhaker does offer a warning: “This book is merely descriptive and should be used for illustrative purposes only. You must read your policies and consult your insurance agent or attorney if you have specific questions relating to the coverage you have been provided.”
The first chapter provides the reader with an important overview to the many contracts, terms and conditions found in the insurance industry. In just a few pages, Fleischhaker simplifies what often stymies insurance policy holders – and sometimes their agents. Miscellaneous information is also provided, and self-help forms are included to help determine one’s exposure to loss. At more than 550 pages, The Savvy Businessperson’s Guide To Property & Casualty Insurance is one of the most comprehensive books on the subject available. Find out more in this informative, reader-friendly book.
Karin A. Fleischhaker initially selected an artistic vocation, but when she was offered a rater/underwriting position with Minnesota Mutual Fire & Casualty, she found herself quickly drawn into what would be her life’s calling. Before entering the agency side of insurance, Fleischhaker worked in the loss control department of the St. Paul Companies, where she was able to draw upon her writing and artistic skills. Often called a “walking book,” her passion for insurance and contractual law enhanced her creative and problem solving skills to assist all clients to receive the best possible product at the lowest cost available. Continuing education in insurance and related topics has been of utmost importance to Fleischhaker, and she received her Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter (CPCU) designation in 1987.
