Welcome to American Educational Institute

Dear Insurance Professional,

Our goal at AEI is a simple one to increase professionalism in the insurance industry by providing effective claims law training. With this in mind, our courses are designed to present current legal issues in property, casualty, workers' compensation, and fraud investigation through the use of clearly written text, practical claims examples, and actual court cases. We challenge our students to achieve a thorough understanding of claims law by analyzing the issues presented in our materials. Rather than memorization by rote, our courses encourage students to evaluate and solve problems using applicable principles of claims law and to use these skills in handling their own claim files.

We use an interactive self-study format that allows students to gain valuable feedback from our full-time staff of professional instructors, both by way of written comments to student examinations and one-on-one tutoring using our toll-free line.

Our materials are produced by our staff in consultation with industry and legal experts. These materials are the ONLY source of claims law education that is current and continually updated to ensure only the most recent information is presented. In addition, we publish a quarterly newsletter dealing with current topics of interest to claims professionals.

Everything we do is intended to promote our goal to provide effective claims law education to the insurance industry, and our entire staff is committed to achieving it.

In today's increasingly complex world of claims, one settlement based on insufficient or incorrect information can be costly. Our claims law courses can make the difference between a settlement that is proper and reasonable and one that is inappropriate and costly.

Sincerely,

Amy L. Koernig
President

ADMISSIBILITY OF NO CONTEST PLEA IN CIVIL INSURANCE DISPUTE

In Bearden v. State Farm Fire & Casualty Company, 299 P3d 705 (Alaska 2013), the Alaska Supreme Court held that an insured’s no contest plea in a criminal matter was admissible in his insurer’s subsequent declaratory judgment action to determine its duty to defend and indemnify. There appears to be a split of opinion among courts having addressed the issue. This article will explain the reasoning of the courts on either side. ...
