OCRIMS Monthly Lunch Meeting
Insurance Coverage for Coronavirus-Related Claims
The SARS-CoV-2 virus, which can result in COVID-19, has infected thousands of people and resulted in a number of deaths worldwide. As a result of the outbreak, there have been suspensions of factory operations, disruptions of supply chains, cancellations of events, quarantines, and flight restrictions. Although the nature and magnitude of the resulting financial losses are not yet known, all estimates indicate that they will be substantial. Fortunately, insureds are not without recourse. Many forms of insurance might cover insureds that have been financially impacted by the outbreak of the virus—even if their facilities and operations are far away from areas of outbreak. In this discussion, Kirk Pasich and Michael Gehrt of Pasich LLP will discuss the types of insurance that may cover losses, focusing on potentially overlooked bases for coverage and why exclusions might not bar coverage. They also will discuss policy time restraints and other policy conditions that could undercut coverage if not addressed proactively.
According to Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business, Kirk Pasich is one of the country’s best-known and most respected lawyers. Kirk has represented insureds in obtaining coverage for losses from civil unrest, earthquakes, explosions, floods, mass shootings, product tampering, terrorism, and wildfires.
Michael Gehrt is a partner in Pasich LLP’s Manhattan Beach office and a member of the firm’s insurance recovery practice. He focuses on representing insureds in a variety of complex insurance coverage matters, including coverage advice, pre-litigation disputes, international arbitrations, and coverage litigation.
