The availability of insurance proceeds is often the difference in being able to resolve a construction dispute. Too often construction managers or general contractors impair their ability to recover insurance proceeds by waiting too long to notify their carriers or missing the opportunity altogether. This session hopes to help demystify, from a CM or GC's perspective, when, what, and how to tap into available risk management tools for a sample of project-based events. Topics will include coverage for construction defects, accidents, design defects, a fire during construction, water intrusion post-construction completion, a defaulting trade contractor, and disputes which surround them. In addition, the session will touch upon best practices for when an insurance adjuster under-values a claimed loss. We will also discuss when and how to notify subcontractors and other parties of events to best engage their insurance carriers.
