Construction Pollution Insurance Coverage
Analyzing Coverage Under Contractors Pollution Liability Policies, Navigating Pollution Exclusions in CGL and PL Policies
Recording of a 90-minute CLE webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will provide construction counsel with an understanding of the scope of insurance coverage and definition of policy exclusions for pollution damages arising from construction activities, products and debris. The program will review of the scope of varying forms of the pollution coverage in CGL, PL and CPL policies as well as the differing court interpretations of the pollution exclusion, and provide best arguments for owners, contractors and insurers to either avoid or maximize coverage.
- Pollution exclusions in CGL and PL policies
- Scope of coverage and exclusions in pollution legal liability policies
- Risk allocation for liability arising from subcontractor actions
- Recent case law developments
The panel will review these and other key issues:
- How do courts make the distinction between traditional and nontraditional sources of pollution?
- How has the pollution exclusion been applied in the context of construction debris?
- What is the scope of coverage under CPL policies?
