Climate change and its resulting severe weather effects are here. One need look no further than the severe flooding from Hurricane Ida and even more recent destructive tornadoes in the southeast and mid-west. Climate change has disrupted traditional weather patterns. What was a once a hundred-year risk of a catastrophic hurricane is now occurring with frightening frequency. Wildfires ravage the west coast and are occurring inland as well.
This program will equip attendees with strategies to maximize insurance recoveries for these climate change-related losses by:
1. Recognizing and understanding key insurance coverage considerations;
2. Recognizing and including business interruption losses and extra expense outlays;
3. Preparing and presenting well-supported property damage claims;
4. Outlining strategies for pursuing claims and incentivizing the insurance company to resolve them with due speed; and
5. Navigating the insurance appraisal process as a means of resolving valuation disputes.
