Recurring Issues and Questions In CGL Coverage

Gain an understanding of the frequent concerns and inquiries regarding CGL coverage.In an era of increased risk where natural and man-made disasters and accidents are common place and frequently involve liability associated with environmental loss, injury involving the use of social media and big data, and the growing costs associated with defending and resolving lawsuits, it is imperative for risk managers, attorneys and business leaders to be acutely aware of scope of and common issues arising under commercial general liability (CGL) policies. CGL insurance commonly provides a defense from a lawsuit where there is potential coverage and provides indemnity for any covered claim, settlement or judgment. This topic will provide you with insight into the key coverages available and concerns that arise in the CGL insurance arena and provide guidance regarding common issues and questions under a CGL policy. This material will open with a discussion of how CGL insurance operates, including a discussion of the major types of liability covered under a CGL policy, access to CGL coverage as an additional insured, and understanding a basic CGL coverage tower. We will then discuss the most significant recurring issues and questions related to CGL coverage, focusing on the duty to defend, common policy exclusions, concerns when pursuing coverage for long-tail asbestos and environmental claims, and allocation and exhaustion issues. We will conclude with a discussion of the recurring issues and questions to consider in connection with how insurers handle CGL claims.
