Paul D. McCormick, and Sarah J. Delaney, partners in Goldberg Segalla’s Global Insurance Services Practice Group, authored this commentary for Westlaw Journal: Insurance Coverage addressing issues concerning insurance coverage for damage related to Hurricane Irene. 

“Primary among those issues will be causation: whether the damage was caused by flood (an excluded loss) or wind and wind-driven rain or something else (water main or sewer backups),” the article notes. “Second, businesses will try to recover their loss of profit for the time when the storm forced them to close their doors. It is important in determining these losses that accurate calculations of damages are made. This commentary provides a brief overview of the issues that surely will cross the desks of thousands of property and casualty adjusters very soon.”
