Confidential Insurance Archeology®
Finding yesterday’s policies for today’s claims.
We search historical insurance policies to reconstruct coverage and help attorneys defend against latent injury claims and fund settlements.
Historical commercial general liability insurance policies are valuable assets that can be worth millions of dollars and can help pay for legal defense, settlements, and damages. Our attorney clients have received funding support from insurance companies that have ranged from hundreds of thousands of dollars to millions of dollars.
Our Confidential Insurance Archeology® service develops leads and finds historical commercial general liability insurance assets. We do this by conducting corporate history research and reconstructing historical insurance coverage to locate lost or mislaid insurance documents, or evidence of policies. This service allows us to present an array of available insurance assets to our clients.
The retrieval or reconstruction of a lost or misplaced CGL insurance policy can protect institutions from serious financial loss. A single insurance archaeology project can provide millions of dollars in defense costs and indemnity to the institutions faced with response costs for injuries and damages occurring under previous management.
Our insurance coverage charts show a client’s coverage for claims and defense.
