Centralia SINA hears about insurance outcomes

July 2, 2019

By Tina Suarez-

The Southern Illinois Networking Association met on June 27 at the Centralia Recreation Complex. President Mike Chambers led the group in prayer and the pledge. All members in attendance spoke about different things happening in the community.

Sonya Germann passed around flyers about an upcoming event at the Recreation Complex. The Health and Wellness Fun Fest 2019 will be held on July 18 from 3 to 6 p.m.

Come out and experience free fun for all ages. There will be prizes, raffle tickets, arts and crafts, sports and activities, therapy animals, face painting, health screenings, preventive care, healthy eating and lots more. The theme of the program is “Oh, The Places You’ll Go.” The more activities attended will result in a better chance at winning free prizes.

Mike Chambers introduced Pam Chaney as the featured speaker for the morning. Pam spoke on many different insurances cases and what the outcomes were. Two insurance case outcomes are listed below.

A bull jumped a fence and impregnated a Santa Grutuis cow. The owner of the cow sued because of the loss of value in the calf, and the owner was negligent for not properly confining the bull. The company paid as a liability claim.

In a workman’s comp case for a trucking company, an employee fell going to his truck and the fall caused a condition to spread that had previously been dormant. The company ended up paying over one million dollars in workman’s comp losses.

There were many more insurance cases that were discussed. Thank you, Pam, for a great presentation.

There will not be a meeting next week because of the Fourth of July.
