Share |

PAGE offers the best legal protection and professional liability insurance available. Each year hundreds of PAGE members benefit from successful resolution of their legal situations.

 

PAGE works in a positive, professional and confidential manner on legal issues, without fanfare or publicity. Our members do not wish for undue publicity that can further damage their case or their reputations. We believe that this is the best way to resolve sensitive legal matters, therefore you rarely read or hear about PAGE members’ legal problems in the media. But we are there supporting our members.

Important Note for Bus Drivers: PAGE does not represent bus drivers in traffic court. In cases involving the operation of a motor vehicle, bus drivers are covered by the school system’s fleet insurance policy. For professional liability policies, the standard insurance industry policy exclusions include operation of a motor vehicle. This exclusion is referenced in the PAGE policy and all other association policies. PAGE will, however, provide certain supplemental legal services to bus drivers in cases involving operation of a motor vehicle. For example, in accident cases resulting in death or serious injury, PAGE can assign an attorney to monitor the insurance and/or legal proceedings to provide ongoing oversight and communication to the member.
