After the cruise ship accident off the coast of Italy last week, many of us will look a little differently at the ships docked at the Port of Miami. In the insurance business, it is hard not to wonder if cruising has become so mundane that travelers forget the risks involved. Granted, the situation with the Costa Concordia was unusual.

Fri Dec 23rd, 2011 on     Insurance Claims,    

Every year, an untold number of Florida’s families wonders what would happen if a big storm rolled in on Christmas Eve and Santa couldn’t make it. Rudolph can only get so far with the shiny nose thing. In hail and sleet and even a major wind storm, Santa could be grounded — or worse, he could be in an accident along the flyway or on the slippery roof of someone’s house.
