"Construction Defect Claims: A 2021 Update—Part I," Mealey's Litigation Report

In Part I of “Construction Defect Claims: A 2021 Update,” Thomas F. Segalla, Michael T. Glascott, Ashlyn M. Capote, Adam R. Durst, Sean P. Hvisdas, and Samantha M. McDermott of Goldberg Segalla’s Global Insurance Services practice provided commentary on 2021 decisions in defect insurance coverage cases. This is the latest in an ongoing series within the Mealey’s Litigation Report.

“Construction defect insurance coverage cases, especially in the liability context, are typically replete with analyses regarding whether the alleged damages were the result of an occurrence or whether any business risk exclusions preclude coverage,” said the attorneys in their introduction to the commentary. “… the breadth of issues reminds us that the disputes are particular to the policy and facts at issue in any given case.”

Part I discussed rulings in Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, Georgia, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Minnesota, Mississippi, Montana, New York, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, and Washington.
