Property Insurance Claims with Multiple Causation Losses: Coverage Fundamentals
Evaluating Causation in First-Party Claims with Covered and Non-Covered or Excluded Causes
Recording of a 90-minute CLE webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will provide an introduction to various approaches used by courts to determine coverage in first-party property insurance claims with multiple losses. The panel will explain best practices for counsel to insurers and policyholders in evaluating causation when there are covered and non-covered or excluded causes of loss.
- Efficient proximate cause doctrine
- Independent concurrent rule
- Enforcement of "anti-concurrent causation" language
- Best practices for insurers and policyholders in evaluating coverage
The panel will review these and other key questions:
- What approaches have various courts taken to evaluate causation in losses with more than one cause?
- What should the parties consider in defining and counting the number of perils?
- What should the parties consider when working with consultants to investigate causes of losses?
Following the speaker presentations, you'll have an opportunity to get answers to your specific questions during the interactive Q&A.
