Seyferth Blumenthal & Harris LLC (SBH) attorneys Bruce Moothart and Nick Daugherty recently co-authored an article published with Insurance Journal, considered the most-read national property and casualty publication for independent insurance agents and brokers.
In the article, Moothart and Daugherty examine the trend of businesses facing unprecedented interruptions due to COVID-19 attempting to use commercial insurance policies to lessen the financial burden. Insurers are often denying the claims, and many states are considering legislation that might force them to pay out. A large wave of related ligation is expected to follow.
