Trends and Developments in Insurance for COVID-19 Pandemic Losses

This program will review developments and trends in coverage litigation under first-party insurance policies with respect to the COVID-19 pandemic. We will survey notable trial and appellate court rulings, share discernable trends in the litigation, and review the status of both state and federal legislative efforts to respond to the pandemic. The substance of the program will be updated constantly until the date of the Webinar.

Key Takeaways:

  1. Summary of litigation trends in COVID-19 coverage suits; a mechanism for more than temporary work in a non-barred state.
  2. Overview of legislative efforts in the United States to respond to the pandemic; and
  3. Develop an appreciation of the concerns that appellate tribunals are expressing with respect to the pandemic.

  • Identify trends in COVID-19 coverage litigation in the United States.
  • Understand the key arguments being picked up by appellate courts in COVID-19 insurance-coverage litigation in the United States to date.
  • Appreciate the various legislative approaches being taken across the United States in response to questions about insurance coverage for the pandemic.
