Coverage Triggers: Occurrence vs. Claims Made Liability Coverage

THIS WEEK WE RECOMMEND* THE FOLLOWING “ON DEMAND” WEBINAR:
 
 
 
 

Liability protection can be provided by either an “occurrence” trigger or a “claims made” trigger. There is no difference in the protection provided by these forms (subject only to the purpose of the forms); the only difference is what triggers each form to respond.

Participants in this webinar will learn:

  • The coverage triggers for both “occurrence” and “claims made” forms;
  • The four legal theories applied to determine when an injury or damage occurs;
  • What BERP’s and SERP’s are, when they should be used and their limitations; and
  • The problems created when a client moves from one coverage trigger form to another.

PLRB – Tender Benders: A Practical Approach to Additional Insureds and Contractual Indemnity Webinar

 
 
Tender Benders: A Practical Approach to Additional Insureds and Contractual Indemnity
Join us for a Webinar on July 10, 2014
 
 
Space is limited.
 
Join us for the final installment of our webinar series “Hot Topics from the Claims Conference.” We know some of you could not make it to the PLRB Claims Conference this year, so we are bringing you modified versions of some of the best presentations. While there is no CE credit for these webinars, this is a great opportunity to see what you might have missed at the Conference. 
 
When today’s mail brings a request or demand for additional insured and/or trade contract indemnity protection, both novice and seasoned claims professionals have to act both quickly and wisely. If the tender comes from a party claiming to be owed additional insured status under an insurance policy and contractual indemnity under a trade contract, how should those requests be properly and accurately evaluated? Similarly, how do you determine when your insured may be entitled to the protection by a trade partner or another insurer, and what tools should be harnessed to best protect your insured and your company? PLRB is pleased to offer this webinar led by Dan Kohane, a senior member at Hurwitz and Fine, P.C., in Buffalo, NY, as he provides you with a practical approach to unraveling the tender conundrum. 
 
Learning Objectives
 
Dan plans to help you:
 
– Analyze and understand the differences between tenders based upon additional insured provisions found in liability policies and requests for defense and indemnity under hold harmless agreements in trade contracts; 
– Develop a method and approach to identify when to tender and to whom, when to accept a tender and when to refuse; 
– Understand the rights that are associated with additional insured status as compared to contractual indemnity provisions; 
– Respond properly when on the receiving end of a tender and know instinctively when you should be seeking the protection of others.

Potential Liability for Mishandling Electronic Data

Webinar Wednesday: Eyewitness Testimony and Its Impact on Adjustments

THIS WEEK WE RECOMMEND THE FOLLOWING WEBINAR:

Not only is this an excellent webinar for liability adjusters, it is actually good for property folks, too.  It is important in subrogation as well as determining the cause of loss.

Eyewitness Testimony and Its Impact on Adjustments

Join David Curry, Ph.D., Vice President, Human Performance Sciences and Technology for ITC Experts, for our next webinar on Eyewitness Testimony and Its Impact on Adjustments.
Judges and juries oftentimes regard eyewitnesses to accidents or incidents as a sort of gold standard as to what occurred. The great credence they give to the testimony of such eyewitnesses largely ignores well-known limitations to the human perceptual system. The problem is further compounded by a lack of understanding of how the mind retains information and how it evolves over time. This presentation is designed to acquaint the audience with some of the issues which affect or limit the perception of the individual at the time of an event, as well as make attendees aware of how and why memory for the event evolves over time in response to a wide variety of factors. This presentation is particularly timely, since judges in New Jersey are now required to provide this type of information to juries in criminal cases, likely opening the door to similar testimony in civil litigation as well.

Learning Objectives

By attending this session, you will:

– Review human perceptual limitations and aberrations that may affect an individual’s recall of an accident/incident
– Describe memory limitations, misinterpretations, and alterations that may affect an individual’s recall of critical details of a witnessed accident/incident
– Evaluate how limitations can most easily be identified, addressed, and handled during investigation and potential litigation
– Demonstrate why scientifically-obtained physical evidence is often more valid than witness testimony

Bulletproofing Your Claim Investigation Against Bad Faith
Many bad-faith claims flow from allegations of deficient adjuster investigations. Plaintiff attorneys will examine an adjuster’s fact-finding process months or years after the fact, compare it with “ideal” approaches and argue that the claim decision-making was flawed by a an adequate, biased or superficial investigation. This webinar will examine specific tips and strategies insurers and TPAs can adopt to insulate themselves from such claims through conducting reasonable investigations.

THIS WEEK WE RECOMMEND THE FOLLOWING WEBINAR:

CLM 2014 Webinars

Don’t Worry, Dear, They Have To Pay You Even
Though I Caused The Loss: When Must An Innocent
Co-Insured Be Paid?
Insurance fraud investigation focuses on establishing whether an insured is responsible for the claimed loss, or otherwise misrepresented or concealed material facts. But if it is established that fraud was committed, that is not the end of the inquiry. Depending on the policy language and the law in the jurisdiction, other insureds still may be entitled to payment. This webinar will discuss the law in various states as to when innocent co-insureds are entitled to payment, policy language that may impact that determination and related issues.
