Insurance, Reinsurance, and Surety Legal News

For visitors looking for insurance coverage laws, litigation, risk management, or compliance issues, the National Law Review has up-to-date content on insurance and reinsurance related matters.

Insurance Coverage in a Variety of Situations

Coverage includes different types of insurance policies companies require when doing business with clients, or professionals in the medical/legal field require, to protect themselves (licenses) against lawsuits. Malpractice insurance for legal and medical professionals, professional liability insurance for a store-owner, environmental liability, business interruption insurance coverage for companies, and commercial general liability (CGL) insurance, for large corporations, are among the different cases and stories visitors to the National Law Review will find, when visiting the site. Additionally, following major catastrophic events, such as flooding, hurricanes, or other loss of income, which causes a business to shut its doors, property loss and business interruption insurance coverage is available to businesses. Cyber insurance is another major area of insurance-law today, given cyber attacks, fraud, data breaches, and security issues online. The National Law Review covers the basics as it relates to these, and other forms of insurance, requirements for businesses, and how it will protect them from lawsuits in their niche industry.  We also report on coverage/lack of coverage as it relates to insurance agreements involved in construction defects. This can be a major issue, especially in dealing with government contracts, and we provide detailed information about procedures, risks, and what companies should do, in the event they don’t have a policy (lapse), when working on certain contracts.

Insurance Litigation

Visitors to NLR can also read about insurance disputes as they relate to bad-faith claims, extra-contractual liability, or fiduciary-arrangements between companies/clients. Insurance fraud, toxic torts, class actions, and other premium situations, are frequently covered online. Additionally, insurance litigation at the district court and state court level is analyzed by the legal experts who write for the National Law Review.
