Modeling Your Way to a Successful Coverage Outcome

How to clarify and simplify complex insurance coverage disputes with effective modeling

By William Downs

Insurance coverage disputes often involve numerous open-ended variables and competing arguments about, among other things, which policy should respond to the underlying matter. This dynamic can make it difficult to calculate the value of any individual coverage argument, much less to accurately assess how the combination of several arguments affects valuations.

This article highlights some, but not all, ways to create a successful model that may improve the chances of an effective outcome.
