The Georgia Supreme Court Expands the Definition of "Occurrence" in Construction Defect Cases [Global Insurance Alert]

July 31, 2013

On July 12, 2013, the Georgia Supreme Court expanded covered damages in construction defect cases by broadening the definition of “occurrence,” yet left in place the insurer’s right to deny coverage based upon the lack of “property damage” and the business risk exclusions. Taylor Morrison Services, Inc. v. HDI-Gerling America Insurance Company, No. S13Q0462, 2013 WL 3481555 (Ga. July 12, 2013). Specifically, the Court held that damage to the insured’s property or work may constitute an “occurrence.”

Georgia Supreme Court Changes Reservation of Rights Law [Global Insurance Alert]

August 06, 2012

June 18, 2012), dramatically changing Georgia's ''Reservation of Rights'' law. In short, Hoover held insurers may no longer disclaim coverage under a specific policy provision, while reserving the right to do so under others. Id. at *3. The court held that a carrier waives coverage defenses that do not form the basis of the claim denial. Id. According to Hoover, a carrier cannot ''both deny a claim outright and attempt to reserve the right to assert a different defense in the future.'' Id. at *2.
