Event Description

Learn How CGL Policies are Structured—and How Courts Interpret Them

For most contractors, establishing an insurance program usually begins with obtaining an appropriate commercial general liability (CGL) policy. It creates a platform through which other policies are integrated to ensure that all gaps are properly sealed. Like any contractor, you should be fairly certain about the coverage you can expect from your CGL policy—especially construction defect claims. However, recent court cases have placed contractors in a position of uncertainty.

Learn the major issues regarding coverage provided by CGL policies for claims arising in the construction industry—construction defect claims in particular—in this informative webinar by industry expert Brandon G. Hummel. Hummel will show you how to interpret CGL policies including declarations, definitions, insuring agreements, conditions, exclusions, and endorsements. He will also discuss coverage analysis in detail as it relates to the duty to defend and the duty to indemnify.

In addition, Hummel will review at least 20 of the most common exclusions to coverage for construction related claims—such as Your Products, Your Work, Faulty Workmanship, Expected Injury, Contractual Liability, and Professional Services Exclusions.

Although Hummel's primary focus will be on CGL policies, he will also cover other types of insurance policies—such as builders risk property insurance, professional liability, and umbrella/excess.

After attending this webinar, you will know the anatomy of a CGL insurance policy, and the rules of construction for CGL insurance policies will be clear to you. You will not only know how CGL policies are structured and interpreted by the courts, but also how a number of common exclusions are treated by the insurance industry and by the courts. This webinar packs quite a punch, as you can see in the session highlights and webinar agenda below.
