Topic: Pandemic Compounded by Civil Unrest: The Insurance Implications

Join Wilson Elser Insurance Coverage partners Jennifer Martin, Daniel Tranen and Paul White for a discussion of expected first-party claims associated with the ongoing civil unrest. 


  • Specified risks
  • Civil authority coverage
  • Physical loss requirements
  • Inventory and contents coverage
  • Voluntary vs. mandatory shutdowns
  • Policy conditions and the insuring agreements or exclusions that specifically identify civil unrest activities
  • Whether coverage is impacted if insured property was already vacated due to COVID-19 

Additionally, the panel will explore how various coverages, conditions and exclusions are likely to respond to the recent unrest and the problems with proof of loss – especially for business interruption coverage – for business owners and property owners in communities that are reopening following the COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns.

Topic: Impact of COVID-19 on Workers’ Compensation

Employers across the country will face workers’ compensation claims as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Whether they will be held responsible for these claims will depend on the laws of each state, which are in flux as governors and legislatures adapt to address the potential scenarios and comply with federal guidance and law. New York partner Jeremy Buchalski will guide employers through this changing landscape.
