Petter Quoted in Halloween Claims Article in Law360

Attorney Kelly Petter provided her opinion in a Law360 article focusing on several Halloween-themed insurance coverage cases.  The cases involved insurance coverage issues presented by claims of theft, product liability, personal injury, auto accident, sexual assault and wrongful death.

Commenting on one case involving a tender for defense and indemnity under a liability policy, Petter told Law360 it was “significant that the court said it’s not enough to just look to the certificate of insurance to determine if coverage exists and, instead, turned to the lease agreement and federal regulations to ultimately decide coverage didn’t extend to the city.  According to Petter, businesses should look for the disclaimer on the certificate that states it’s not a contract, and doesn’t amend, extend or alter the coverage.”
