CLASSROOM | ENHANCING | TECHNICAL

This seminar will be focused on recent case law in Alberta, how that case law may impact our application of the law to particular cases, and how to use/distinguish these cases in dealing with claimants. We will touch on the following topics:

   Litigation insurance
   Cannabis and home owners insurance
   Innocent insureds
   SEF 44 coverage
   WCB and vicarious liability
   Mental and psychological injuries
   Diminished value claims

Brokers: will learn how the courts are dealing with the SEF 44 endorsement where there is no coverage under the SPF #1. What impact will cannabis have on home owner's policies? How will the innocent insured be treated?

Underwriters: will learn how the Courts are dealing with WCB and vicarious liability of related companies. Do the related companies have any exposure to WCB claims?

Claims adjusters: will learn about litigation insurance, how the Courts are dealing with this and how are the Courts quantifying mental/psychological injuries?

   How cannabis will impact the insurance industry
