Overview

One of the largest and most powerful storms on record, Superstorm Sandy made landfall near Atlantic City, N.J. on Monday, October 29, 2012. This superstorm extended almost 1,000 miles wide, at one point reaching from Detroit to Bermuda. Given the wide range of losses that can occur during or in the aftermath of a storm – including wind damage, entry of rainwater into the interior of buildings, flood losses and loss of power – and the range of policies under which claims may be made for such losses, Sandy can be expected to give rise to various coverage issues that claim professionals and attorneys for the insured will need to consider when addressing claims for losses during and in the aftermath of the storm.

Hurricane Law: Insurance and Recovery Issues Applicable to Major Storm Damage provides critical guidance on some of the important areas of law that might be implicated in the aftermath of major storms such as Sandy. Compiled from several LexisNexis Matthew Bender publications, the chapters in this eBook provide commentary on climate change and insurance, understanding commercial property and homeowner’s insurance, flood insurance, and condominium and home owners associations and planned unit developments casualty loss and insurance.
