If large flood events are the "new normal," and the take-up rate for flood insurance isn't keeping pace, where will property owners turn in the wake of large flood losses?

To the courts, probably. Headline-grabbing judgments against the US Army Corps of Engineers have highlighted the potential for recovery from third parties responsible for flood conditions.

This webinar will explore the status of liability claims for property damage arising from flooding. The presentation will cover:

  • Recent judgments regarding flood damage
  • Legal theories for establishing or rebutting liability for flood-related loss
  • The role of new flood risk assessment technologies in supporting third party flood claims, including subrogation of losses paid under first-party flood coverage
