Archaeology and Claims Advocacy Deliver Unexpected Results

A water company, on the verge of a trial, was facing a significant liability related to historic asbestos claims. The company had limited insurance to provide coverage and defense for the claim. The Arcina team was able to immediately implement an archaeology and advocacy plan that within two weeks located significant insurance assets and arranged for defense of the claims. On the eve of the trial, the case settled with the authority of multiple insurers, and the carriers ultimately reimbursed 100% of the defense costs, resulting in a seven-figure recovery for the insured. Diligence and persistence resulted in the location of over $100 million in coverage for pending and future asbestos claims, providing the client with both piece of mind and a reliable insurance asset.
