Barbara O’Donnell hosts Presentation for PLRB 2022 Claims Conference

Sulloway Member Barbara O’Donnell recently hosted a Faulty Construction Coverage Disputes Presentation for the PLRB 2022 Claims Conference Webinar series. By examining significant recent decisions that endorsed a pro-policyholder approach to the threshold “occurrence” determination in faulty workmanship construction coverage disputes, Barbara and her co-presenter, PLRB in-house counsel, Eric Friedemann, provided claims professionals and their counsel with the analytical tools needed to resolve high-stakes coverage disputes.

Their presentation also addressed the differing approaches courts around the country take to the treatment of “rip and tear” damages and frequently overlooked coverage issues that arise when efforts are undertaken to correct faulty workmanship outside the litigation context.
