Additional Insured Coverage in Construction Contracts and Interplay With Contractual Indemnification Clauses
Recording of a 90-minute CLE video webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will provide attendees with a review of key issues in, and the evolution of, additional insured (AI) coverage under commercial general liability policies, the interplay between contractual indemnification and AI coverage, and best practices to maximize AI coverage and for insurers to minimize exposure.
- Overview of additional insured status
- Policy language and evolution of additional insured forms
- Endorsements vs. certificate of insurance
- Additional insured vs. additional named insured
- Scope of coverage
- The interplay between contractual indemnity and additional insured coverage
- Contractual indemnification
- Contractual insurance requirements
- Best practices for insurers to minimize exposure for AI coverage and contractual indemnity
The panel will review these and other key issues:
- How can counsel ensure that contractually required AI coverage is satisfied by the named insured's policy?
- Why is a possession of merely a certificate of insurance often inadequate protection for the party seeking AI status?
- What are the challenges and pitfalls in drafting indemnification provisions for construction contracts?
- How do the insurer's duties and obligations vary concerning AI coverage versus contractual indemnification?
