One Insured, Multiple Insurers, Multiple Lawsuits: Managing Liability, Settlement, and Coverage Issues
Recording of a 90-minute CLE video webinar with Q&A
This CLE webinar will discuss how to manage coverage, liability, and settlement issues that arise when a single policyholder is sued multiple times and has been insured by numerous insurers. The panel will review how to resolve which insurers must defend and defense sharing agreements, best strategies for coordinating and managing the defense, issues arising from efforts to settle the underlying liability suits, strategies when an insurer will not agree to fund a judgment or settlement, subrogation issues, and more.
- Duty to defend and defense costs
- Duty to settle, mediation, and insurer consent
- Duty to indemnify: managing the unwilling insurer
- Subrogation issues
The panel will review these and other key issues:
- What solutions exist for identifying who has the duty to defend and cover defense costs?
- What are the coverage implications of establishing a reasonable settlement value?
- If joint and several liability is not available, how are damages allocated?
- What happens after the insurer pays a judgment or a settlement of the underlying lawsuit but believes the insured had a claim against some other party for the loss?
