Notice of Claims in Claims-Made Insurance Policies
Identifying Claims; Evaluating Whether and When to Report
Recording of a 90-minute CLE webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will provide insurance counsel with a review of what constitutes claims in light of various policy provisions. The panel will offer best practices for deciding when and whether to provide notice and review the impact of late notice on coverage.
I. Definition of claim
II. Impact of late notice on coverage
III. Best practices for deciding when or whether to give notice
The panel will review these and other key questions:
- Does a demand or threat constitute a claim?
- What effect do "related" claims have on the scope of coverage?
- What factors should the policyholder consider in deciding whether or when to give notice to the insurance company?
- How is the notice-prejudice rule applied in the context of claims-made policies?
Following the speaker presentations, you'll have an opportunity to get answers to your specific questions during the interactive Q&A.
