Class Action Lawsuits and Insurance Coverage Implications

Class actions can be very damaging to and costly for companies. Securing a defense and indemnity from an insurance carrier during a class action may save millions. Insurance coverage issues raised by class actions can be difficult to navigate. Join Barnes & Thornburg’s Insurance Recovery and Counseling Practice Group for a 60-minute CLE webinar to discuss important insurance coverage issues related to class action lawsuits. 


  • The presentation will answer the following questions:

  • What coverages typically apply to class action lawsuits?

  • Can I get my insurance carrier to provide a defense even when the suit does not currently include covered claims?

  • When should I give notice to my insurance carrier of a possible class action and how do I know which carriers to contact?

  • Can I obtain coverage under multiple insurance policies for class periods spanning multiple policy years?

  • Is there coverage when a class action seeks restitution?

  • Could how the settlement is structured affect coverage?

  • What steps can I take now to improve coverage for any future class actions?
