With damage estimates from this devastating storm at more than $100 billion, this is a critical time for insurers and policyholders alike.
New York (PRWEB) December 06, 2012
With losses estimated at more than $100 billion, insurers and policyholders are scurrying to understand exactly how much of the wreckage from Superstorm Sandy will be covered or excluded under various insurance policies and provisions, HB Litigation Conferences’ Tom Hagy said today.
Hagy said this is why his company has teamed up with two leading insurance coverage firms to produce “Insurance Implications of Super Storm Sandy,” a conference that will be held on Dec. 12 in New York City. “This is a critical time in the claims assessment, information gathering and decision-making process, with so much at stake for policyholders and insurers alike. Now surpassing Katrina in terms of damage, Sandy will go down as one of the most devastating and costly storms in U.S. history,” Hagy said.
Chairing the program on Dec. 12 -- which is complimentary to a limited number of corporate participants -- will be Lorelie Masters, Linda Kornfeld and Matthew Jacobs of Jenner & Block, well-known representatives of policyholders in complex matters, and Stephan Goldman, Wystan Ackerman and Gerald “Kip” Dwyer of Robinson & Cole, experienced representatives of insurers in complex disputes. Both firms handled coverage matters in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.
Speakers include Brad Murlick, Navigant Consulting; Derek W. Royster, RGL Forensics; Phillip Silverberg, Mound Cotton Wollan & Greengrass; and Milan Vatovec, Simpson Gumpertz & Heger – panelists that bring perspectives from forensic accounting, engineering, claims evaluation, and other aspects of insurance coverage.
Topics include: covered cause of loss; power interruption; flood and wind exclusions; engineering issues; sub-limits; deductibles; concurrent causation; indistinguishable damage; the adjustment process and investigation; business interruption questions (service interruption, dependent property / time element coverages, civil authority, ingress / egress, extra expense); lost profits, and more. A special session is added where the full panel will field questions from the audience in a moderated discussion. A networking reception will follow the program.
