This course is designed as a guide for claims professionals and attorneys who are new to construction claims. Construction claims can have unusually long life span and involve multiple parties and multiple policies of insurance. The claims present complex issues related to time on the risk and risk transfer. We provide an outline which every claims professional and attorney should understand prior to representation with the goal of ensuring that all viable parties are joined, and every avenue of coverage is obtained on behalf of the insured. We also discuss the unique statutory and common law defenses available to defendants.
