A case can hinge on the language in the insurance policy and the way courts interpret that language. Many policies have specific exclusions for coverage that require interpretation. In this presentation, Jason Cieri and Nicole Vinson, Counsel in the New York and Florida offices of Merlin Law Group, discuss specifics of property insurance policies including exclusions, post-loss obligations of insureds, the crucial differences between renters versus homeowners insurance, and how to handle insurance companies that deny property coverage claims.
