will be going over the fine points of the landmark case at the BodyShop
Business Conference May 5 at Pheasant Run Resort in St. Charles, Ill.

is not fraudulent for a repairer to accept payment from an insurer on behalf of

To hear Eversman’s talk, though, you must sign up for the
seminar portion of the BodyShop Business Conference
. After Eversman breaks down
the important takeaways from the Coccaro case, you can take part in any number
of other seminars on:

• Environmental compliance (6H Rule)

• Building strategic relationships

• Sales/marketing

• Lean concepts

• Waterborne/low-VOC paint

• Social media

• Search engine optimization

• Finding qualified employees

• The advantage of franchising

"The industry would be foolish to waste the
sacrifice Greg and his shop made that benefits the entire industry," says
Eversman. "You are in charge of the repair and liable for it. Write the
damage analysis and blueprint for repair as you professionally determine, not
based on the whim, instructions or alterior purposes of an insurer."
