ORGANIZER: RIMS 2014 Annual Conference
Robert M. Horkovich to speak at the RIMS 2014 Annual Conference on 'When Covered and Uncovered Losses Coincide' on Wednesday, April 30, 2014 from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
You can't be a little bit pregnant, but an insurance company can declare that you only have a partially covered insurance claim. In many cases, covered and uncovered losses may be difficult to disentangle. An insurance company may argue that you only have partial or no coverage. In some states and cases, for example, covered wind claims may be separated from uncovered flood claims; in others, anti-concurrent causation clauses arguably may bar coverage. If part of a loss is caused by a non-covered event do you lose all coverage? Who has to prove what? In California, the State Supreme Court has held that when a loss is covered and non-covered, all is covered unless the insurance company can prove how much is not covered. Other states have ruled differently. This session will show risk managers how to document covered claims when they're mingled with uncovered and make the case for complete coverage when covered/uncovered can't be separated.
