Sometimes a name says it all! Within the insurance industry there are a handful of court decisions that have become known by a single name. This webinar explores five of these cases and their importance to our industry. The five cases explored are:

  • Montrose Chemical Corporation v. Admiral Insurance Company, simply known as “Montrose.” This decision revolves around the “known loss,” or “loss in progress” doctrine and resulted in the “Montrose” endorsement.
  • San Diego Federal Credit Union v. Cumis Ins. Society, Inc. Students learn the history of what became known as “Cumis counsel” and how it can have an impact on the processing of claims.
  • John Burns Construction Company v. Indiana Insurance Company, a 2000 Illinois decision which explains the concept of a “targeted” tender of defense and indemnification.
  • Marx v. Hartford Accident and Casualty Indemnity Co., explains how to decide which exposures constitute professional services (and would therefore be properly insured under a malpractice type of policy) and those which do not.
  • Ballard v. Farmers Insurance Group is a Texas trial court decision rendered in 2001. The landmark verdict is an instructive story on how the industry responded to and continues to respond to mold claims.

Students completing this webinar gain an understanding of how the historical cases continue to affect the way insurance coverage is interpreted today. Don’t miss this opportunity!
