Evaluation of Broker's Liability Exposure

Evaluation of Broker's Liability Exposure

LaPorte CSA, in association with its affiliated law firm, LaPorte & Associates, P.C., has broad based experience in brokers’ and other third-party logistics providers’ liability. We are able to assess broker liability exposure and recommend mitigation measures. We can:

  • Review of Brokerage Agreements
    • Assess the adequacy of indemnification provisions
    • Assess the adequacy of additional insured provisions
  • Carrier Selection Process
    • Verification of safety criteria
    • Verification of authority
    • Verification of cargo and liability insurance
    • Use of load boards and internet postings
    • Obtaining certificates of insurance
  • Adequacy of Contingent Cargo or Other Insurance
    • Review and analysis of contingent cargo or other insurance to identify exclusions or other provisions that may expose the broker to uninsured liability.
