New Appleman on Insurance: Current Critical Issues in Insurance Law
Select a format
The publication includes both articles on new critical issues confronting insurance lawyers and the insurance industry and articles on recurring, perennial issues that insurance lawyers encounter that are yet unsettled in the law. Several articles have appendices surveying the positions of various jurisdictions on the main issue of the article.
The articles range over the wide spectrum of insurance coverage issues and focus on leading and provocative matters of concern to attorneys involved in insurance law. Recent articles illustrate the point:
• When extrinsic evidence can defeat the duty to defend;
• An insurer’s right to recoup non-covered defense costs and indemnity payments;
• How credit default swaps and the lack of regulation brought down an insurance giant;
• The number of occurrences issue under CGL policies;
• The next generation of environmental insurance claims;
• Is a total cessation of business necessary for recovery under business interruption insurance; and
• The scope of disability insurance.
