Insurance Expert Witnesses

Insurance providers have been inundated with claims since the outbreak of COVID-19 and subsequent nationwide shutdown. In true pandemic-style, countless disputes have followed on all matters of insurance policies. Whether you’re preparing litigation related to property damage, business interruption, or workers’ compensation, an insurance expert witness will be an important resource to support any insurance bad faith case.

An insurance expert witness can discuss:

  • Policy coverage terms
  • Viral exclusion clauses
  • Civil authority clauses
  • State legislation mandating certain insurance payouts
  • Insurance benchmarks from previous pandemic coverage
  • An insurer’s duty of good faith
  • An insurer’s fiduciary duty
