Coverage for Construction Claims

INSTRUCTOR: Michael C. Bruck

When a homeowner or a business owner discovers a defect in new construction, a lawsuit against the general contractor and subcontractors is not far behind. Construction defect claims are made more complicated by contractual provisions in construction contracts under which subcontractors are required to defend and indemnify general contractors and list general contractors as additional insureds. This one-hour program covers the definition of “property damage”, common policy language and exclusions, the tug-of-war over whether faulty or defective workmanship even constitutes an “occurrence”, and consequential damage issues. The program also surveys recent developments and current case law impacting construction defect claims.
