Please join Mark Siwik, Attorney at SandRun Risk, Diana S. Gliedman, Shareholder at Anderson Kill, and Mollie N. Werwas, Founding Member at Airdo Werwas who will be speaking in an upcoming Strafford live video webinar, "Reconstructing Coverage Under Missing Policies: Sources of Evidence, Burdens of Proof, Scope of Coverage" scheduled for Tuesday, April 4, 1:00pm-2:30pm EDT.
Decades-old policies go missing because policyholders and insurers have ceased to exist, downsized, merged, relocated, or even experienced physical catastrophes.
Counsel for either the insured or insurer must understand what type of evidence is sufficient to prove or deny coverage, as well as the burdens of proof and which party has them.
Our panel will discuss why locating and evaluating coverage under old insurance policies has become a strategic imperative and the evidentiary requirements for proving or denying coverage when the terms of an insurance policy are missing.
We will review these and other crucial issues:
- Who has the burden of proof to establish or deny coverage?
- When should third-party policy location services be used?
- What happens when there is competing evidence about the scope of coverage in lost policies?
- Do special rules apply when dealing with lost excess policies?
- Can bad faith claims arise from reconstructing policies?
After the presentations, there will be a live question and answer session so we can answer your questions about these important issues directly. I hope you'll join us.
