EEC Helps Clients Recover Millions in Environmental Investigation and Remediation Costs from Old Insurance Policies

Insurance Cost Recovery - Are you staring at a costly site remediation or CERCLA allocation? Did these releases start before 1985? Did you have a comprehensive general liability (CGL) insurance policy at the time or did you purchase or acquire a property that was contaminated by others, in which the prior owner may have had a CGL policy? If you answered yes to each of these, then you have a very strong chance of recovering your investigation and remediation costs, retroactively and going forward.

EEC has helped our clients recover millions of dollars from old CGL insurance policies that were in place before “absolute pollution exclusion” was added in the mid-1980’s. Therefore, if the “occurrence” started before the mid-1980’s (e.g., leaking USTs, PCE from dry cleaning, metal finishing solvents, metals in wastewater discharge) and there is any chance of recovering investigation and remediation funds through an old CGL policy, EEC can assist you in making a claim for substantial recovery of your clean-up costs. This applies even if you are still incurring these costs, or will in the future. EEC will help determine the strength of your claim and calculate the amount of money you are entitled to. We will then work side by side with you to negotiate with the insurance company, or support you in litigation, if that becomes necessary.
