Free Webinar for ABA Members: The Insurance Response to Disasters - April 15, 2013

The Tort Trial & Insurance Practice Section of the American Bar Assocation is sponsoring a free webinar on The Insurance Response to Disasters:  Considerations for Insurers and Businesses on April 15, 2013.  The webinar will cover the following: 
Superstorms, hurricanes, drought, floods, wildfires, tornados - the past year has seen a surge in catastrophic events in the United States. This in turn has led to unprecedented levels of insured losses, which for Superstorm Sandy alone were recently estimated at over $28 billion. These losses create tremendous operational and financial risk for impacted business, while subsequent response efforts can create a "double-dip" of risk in the form of large intangible losses in management time, effort, and loss of focus on core business activities.

Whether representing insured businesses with catastrophic losses or carriers responding to subsequent claims, understanding the complexities facing both sides - best practices for policyholders in responding to losses and how the insurance industry responds to these disasters - can be key to resolving these complex insurance claim issues.

This panel discussion features speakers from both the insurer and policyholder perspective who will discuss:
  • Best practices for insureds in responding to a catastrophe and mitigating losses
  • Preparation and submission of the insurance claim
  • The insurer's expectations for and response to the claim
  • Best practices for businesses in planning for the next disaster, including proactive review of coverages and optimizing financial recovery
