ORGANIZER: Legal Publishing Group of Strafford Publications Teleconference
Robert M. Horkovich to speak on a panel at the Legal Publishing Group of Strafford Publications Teleconference on 'Environmental Insurance Coverage for NRD, CERCLA, RCRA, OPA and Other Claims: Identifying Coverage in Existing Policies, Navigating Pollution and Owned Property Exclusions, and Determining Scope of Damages' on Thursday, August 14, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. Eastern.Insurance coverage is a crucial source for recovery of environmental investigation, cleanup, liability, and defense costs. Current trends in environmental claims, whether NRD, CERCLA, RCRA or other claims, present evolving theories of liability that impact potential coverage under non-environmental policies.While CGL coverage is typically used to recover costs and pay for damages from environmental liabilities, other business policies, such as property insurance and even D&O policies, may also provide coverage.Frequently litigated pollution exclusion issues include what constitutes a "pollutant' and whether the exclusion bars coverage for liabilities a policyholder did not expect or intend. Counsel must also wrestle with determining which costs and liabilities will be treated as damages under a policy.Listen as our authoritative panel of insurance coverage attorneys guides you through insurance coverage issues for environmental claims, costs, liabilities and damages.
