2017 NASP National Webinar – “Let’s Get Tanked: Investigating Acrylic Aquarium Failures”

February 14, 2017

Aaron Jacobs will be hosting a 2017 NASP National Webinar on Tuesday, February 14th at 1:00 PM EST. The topic is “Let’s Get Tanked: Investigating Acrylic Aquarium Failures”. 

With reality television series such as “Tanked” on Animal Planet and “Fish Tank Kings” on National Geographic, the popularity of large acrylic aquariums has never been greater. Large-scale acrylic aquariums can be found in restaurants, airports, sporting venues, casinos, and retail outlets. Additionally, large acrylic aquariums are in high demand by some of the country’s most well-known athletes and entertainers. As the popularity and use of large acrylic aquariums grow, property claims involving aquarium failures will likely become more commonplace and prevalent. For example, large aquarium failures have been reported in a South Florida casino; a shopping mall in Dubai; a restaurant in Downtown Disney, Florida; a university in South Florida; and a shopping center in China. Acrylic tanks are capable of holding thousands of gallons of water; therefore, catastrophic failures can lead to significant property damage, and, in many cases, substantial business loss. This webinar will assist subrogation professionals in investigating, evaluating, and pursuing subrogation recovery in claims involving large acrylic aquarium failures.
