In 2013, ISO introduced a new additional insured form. Now that the form has been around for a few years we have been able to see it in practice. This session will discuss coverage issues surrounding additional insureds on commercial general liability policies issued to contractors and subcontractors in the Southeast. These issues include priority of coverage, coverage (or not) for claims of an additional insured’s exclusive negligence, and how contractual indemnity and additional insured status work together and work with the Southeastern states’ laws regarding enforceable indemnity contracts. Additional Insured status has taken center stage in construction litigation in so many ways, and this panel will lead an interactive discussion about the not-so-simple challenges this issue presents.
