    Webinar: The Future of Insurance Law? Restatement of Law – Liability Insurance

    Webinar ID: 625-723-227
    Meeting Link: https://zoom.us/j/625723227

    The Restatement of Law – Liability Insurance. If you have not heard of this before, it will certainly become part of your vocabulary in the near future. But what is it and why should insurers take notice? Join attorneys Scott Rybny and Dick DiBella as they discuss the development of this important document, which some commentators deemed a misstatement of law. This webinar will explore the American Law Institute’s (“ALI”) recent adoption of the Restatement of Law – Liability Insurance during its May 21, 2018, Annual Conference. The ALI holds this document out as a summary of the law on liability insurance throughout the country. However, it adopted many policyholder friendly rules from a minority of jurisdictions that conflict with many long-standing insurance principles in Pennsylvania.

    Member companies need to take notice of this Restatement as it has the potential to reshape both first and third-party insurance law in Pennsylvania.

    Richard W. DiBella, JD, Vice-President, DiBella Geer McAllister & Best, P.C


    This one hour webinar will focus on the most significant aspects of the Restatement of Liability Insurance for the claims professions including:

    • Policy interpretation including the ALI’s belief that extrinsic evidence should be used;
    • Third-party defense considerations where coverage issues exist; and
    • The “reasonable person in the position of the insured” standard for Reservations of Rights.
