After the Pandemic: Positive Takeaways and a Look at the Claims of Tomorrow
We were knocked down, but we got back up. When COVID-19 caught the world—including the construction and insurance industries—off balance in early 2020, no person or industry was spared from the direct impacts.

From government shutdowns, shuttered construction sites, business interruption, travel restrictions, and new coverage questions, there was no shortage of uncertainty or questions levied upon the industry.
