General Liability insurance policies continue to generate unique and complicated coverage issues. Events such as active shooter situations or massive explosions can result in catastrophic losses and myriad coverage questions under general liability policies. In addition, personal and advertising injury coverage continues to drive new and challenging coverage questions, such as claim scenarios involving cyber and social media, infringement of intellectual property, post termination defamation, and habitational concerns. These loss events frequently implicate other lines of insurance, such as management liability, pollution liability, cyber liability, and employment practices liability, which can lead to complicated questions of allocation of loss and priority of coverage.
