Coverage Traps: How Insurance Companies Try to Use Past Events to Defeat Coverage of New Claims
3:00 p.m. (Eastern)
Claims-made policies say they cover claims first made and reported during the policy period. Once the policyholder has timely reported a claim, there’s nothing further to worry about, right? Wrong. Insurance policies come with a number of trap doors that can threaten or defeat coverage of otherwise covered claims based on events happening prior to when the claim was made.
Join Barnes & Thornburg’s Insurance Recovery and Counseling Practice Group for a 60-minute CLE webinar exploring how insurance companies set these traps, and how policyholders can avoid them.
The presentation focuses on the following questions:
- What are some of the key differences between “occurrence” and “claims-made” policies? How do these differences impact coverage?
- How do insurance companies create coverage traps in claims-made policies based on events prior to the policy period?
- What practices should policyholders consider to avoid stepping into these traps?
- What kinds of policy language should policyholders be watching out for?
