Description: The presenters of this webcast will address catastrophe claims made under your own insurance policies for insurance coverage following disasters.  They begin with how to present such coverage claims and, once they are received, how to investigate them, including under what types of coverage that are or may be available.  They proceed as a catastrophe claim made under your own policies must proceed, from notice, to the adjustment process, to Proof of Loss, partial proofs, and advances.
The presenters next turn their experienced attention to focus on how causation is proved in insurance coverage claims following damages caused by disasters.  One specific type of exclusion among many which is also addressed in this context appears in what is often called an "Anti-Concurrent Causation Clause".  Another type of exclusion generally argued against coverage for catastrophe damages, although it is not ordinarily printed in an insurance policy, concerns what the Courts and many lawyers refer to as a requirement that the claimant prove that the loss was "fortuitous".
Finally, the presenters address the unique features found across the nation in insurance designed to protect against the damages caused by earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, Mississippi River levee destruction, and other specific types of disaster coverage.
