COVID’s Impact on the Insurance Industry from Premiums to Claims-
Needs 1 member and 1 fellow
The Covid-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc on the insurance industry. All aspects have been negatively affected from rising premiums which have contributed to the hardening market, to uncertainty over underwriting the specific risks posed by Covid-19, and ultimately to the unique claims disputes which have erupted in nationwide litigation. The hospitality industry has been particularly hard hit. This panel will address each of these issues within the context of the hospitality industry starting with an understanding of Covid’s impact on insurance pricing and the potential long-term effect on coverage. Next, the panel will examine Covid’s impact on certain types of coverage including worker’s compensation, premises liability, and employment practices liability insurance with a focus on the various claims disputes which are being closely watched by policyholders and insurers alike.  The program will conclude with an assessment of the future impacts on hospitality insurance highlighting best practices to maintain necessary coverages and protect your company’s assets.
