AIMU Lunch and Learn - Auto Excess: Why We Get It Wrong!

Wednesday 25 August 2021, 12:00pm - 01:30pm

Remote option only.

Excess Auto Liability has long been one of the non-marine exposures covered by the Marine Liability insurers’ “Bumbershoot” policies (i.e. Marine Umbrella), but it has never received the level of attention with Marine underwriters that our casualty underwriters do. Discussion will include solutions and valuable insights including that Social inflation continues to plague litigation, resulting in unprecedented verdict values across the country. In addition, litigation funding is increasing in popularity and more prevalent in all types of lawsuits. As a result, the insurance industry is evolving its claims handling philosophy to better understand and manage these issues. Class will end with case studies and live Q&A.
