Edwardsville Partner Speaks at National Claims Conference


Patrick Cloud, a partner in the firm's Edwardsville office, was a speaker at the PLRB/LIRB 2012 Claims Conference & Insurance Services Expo conducted in Orlando, Florida. Given Patrick's extensive experience in the area of insurance law, he was invited to speak on a topic which has generated a great deal of litigation in recent years. Patrick was asked to evaluate the terms and conditions set forth in standard automobile policies used throughout the United States. Patrick and his copresenter specifically addressed recent and developing issues related to medical payments coverage, liability and UM/UIM coverage, effective practices for handling of property damage claims, and the insured's contractual duties following a loss.
