Law360 Publishes, "Coverage For Montecito Claims: Flood or Fire?"
Law360 has published an article written by Los Angeles attorneys Meka Moore and Jennifer Revitz entitled, "Coverage For Montecito Claims: Flood Or Fire?"
The article addresses insurance coverage issues arising from the destruction of Montecito and other areas of Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties, California in the recent flooding and related mudslides. The discussion focuses on the exclusion of coverage for flood damage from most homeowners/commercial property policies, the potential that homeowners might assert that the loss was actually caused by the nearby Thomas Fire, and the broad implications of these issues for insurers and insureds.
Meka Moore is a Partner whose practice focuses on coverage-related matters involving first- and third-party cases arising from a variety of policies, including property-casualty, errors and omissions, and general liability. She also defends insurance companies in disputes that involve complex extracontractual issues and suspected fraud.
