The focus of the webinar will be to provide an overview of the available remedies and corresponding damage measurements for businesses directly or indirectly affected by catastrophic events such as the recent BP Oil Spill and the forecasted active hurricane season. Catastrophic events, whether the result of forces of nature or other events, can give rise to economic claims for business losses recoverable under an insurance policy or through civil remedies. An attorney and an insurance damage expert will explore potential options available for recovery of losses under various claims submission processes as well as recovery through litigation. The experts will give a overview of damages measurements and the challenges practitioners may encounter in performing different types of calculations. Additionally, the experts will focus on similarities of the Exxon Valdez spill to the current BP Oil Spill.
After completing this webinar, participants will be able to:
* Identify the potential remedies available to businesses that have suffered economic losses as a result of catastrophic events.
Identify the differences in different types of damage measurements and understand the challenges of performing damage calculations.
Who Should Attend
Financial professionals, legal professionals and corporate officers whose practice and business requires an understanding of the theories and concepts underlying the calculation of catastrophic damages either under a policy of business interruption insurance policy or a common economic damages model in a liability case against a third party.
