COVID Coverage Issues Resource Added to Insurance Law Essentials


With the rise in COVID-19 coverage issues, we are improving our Insurance Law Essentials reference to provide a dynamic overview of the business interruption cases in each state. IRMI is tracking these cases as they progress and providing access to the court pleadings and the important motions filed by each party.

Our new COVID Coverage Issues service has a main page with an interactive map; separate state pages with sortable tables showing various data related to COVID-19 filings; and PDFs of the complaints, motions, policies, endorsements, and other pertinent filings.

The infographic map allows the reader to see at a glance the unfolding of courts' decisions nationwide on coverage issues such as what constitutes "direct physical loss" and the virus exclusion. It provides a dynamic overview of the currently pending business interruption cases in each state. IRMI is tracking these cases as they progress and is providing readers access to the court pleadings and the important motions filed by each party—and ultimately with the court's final ruling on coverage. The map will unfold states’ trends on whether business interruption coverage is triggered.
