Virtual Training - Insurers and Law Enforcement in Arson Investigations 9.8.22


Insurance Track - Cooperation Between Insurers and Law Enforcement in Arson Investigations – A Case Study
September 8, 2022 1:00pm - 2:30pm Eastern
Instructors: Eric D. Freed,
Live Virtual Training Webinar

This program examines the sometimes tricky and complicated scenario that arises when an insurer reports an insured to law enforcement due to suspicious circumstances surrounding a fire claim. In February, 2018, a devastating fire destroyed a commercial property in the Old City section of downtown Philadelphia. The  presenters will include an attorney hired by the insurer of the property to conduct examinations under oath, evaluate the claim submission, and provide coverage advice, and the federal prosecutor who obtained information about the fire and insurance claim from the insurer and conducted further investigation,  which culminated in convictions for arson and other offenses by the insureds. The presentation will be structured as a case study of the insurance investigation and the subsequent federal criminal investigation that ensued, and how insurers can legally comply with their obligation to report suspected arson claims to law enforcement.
