Risk Management and Insurance Issues in Construction

Make sense of complicated insurance policies related to construction projects, as the panel will identify potential risks and effective ways to work around the issues surrounding indemnity agreements and insurance requirements in construction contracts, including indemnity and coverage for additional insureds. They will also address the effective use of owner controlled and contractor controlled insurance programs, or “wrap-up insurance.” Learn more about whether or to what extent insurance coverage may exist for a construction defect claim under the Commercial General Liability (CGL) insurance policy and whether a claim alleging construction defects qualifies as an accidental “occurrence” under the CGL policy – an issue that has resulted in split decisions by courts across the country and generated a controversy in the industry. The speakers will also discuss hot topics in construction claim litigation, such as whether random testing methods are required in order to prove a systemic construction defect claim.
