Initial Claim Analysis

During the initial stages of an insurance claim, we provide technical support to the insured by compiling historical and environmental information to demonstrate that environmental response actions undertaken to address a release of hazardous substances may be a covered event by an insurance policy, typically a pre-1987 comprehensive general liability policy. We provide technical support through this sometimes iterative process to help support the policyholder in their goal of acquiring insurance coverage under prior or existing insurance policies.

On behalf of the insurance carrier, we review technical information and regulatory background for the coverage claim and provide documentation to facilitate the evaluation of a claim by the insurance carrier. Examples of the documentation we provide include a summary of the historical environmental conditions, the nature and timing of the release of hazardous substances, affected media, the regulatory framework governing the project, and whether third-party damage occurred prior to or during a policy period.
