Insurance for Defective Construction: Beyond Broad Form Property Damage Coverage
When the structure collapses, leaks, burns, or just does not work as it should--and the contractors are sued--unraveling the complicated exclusions and provisions of the commercial general liability (CGL) policy becomes a time-consuming and expensive proposition
Insurance for Defective Construction: Beyond Broad Form Property Damage Coverage When the structure collapses, leaks, burns, or just does not work as it should--and the contractors are sued--unraveling the complicated exclusions and provisions of the commercial general liability (CGL) policy becomes a time-consuming and expensive proposition. By explaining the latest legal theories and policy form changes, this new IRMI book can give you the knowledge to decipher the coverage intent and develop winning coverage arguments. The author has updated the concepts presented in the best selling IRMI book, Broad Form Property Damage Coverage (3d, 1992), and analyzed the latest legal theories, trends and approaches for you. This book explains the drafting history behind the property damage provisions that govern a CGL policy's treatment of construction defect claims and carefully analyzes and comments on the cases that have interpreted them. By Patrick J. Wielinski, 200 pp. February 2000.
