Insurance and risk management professionals picked PFAS or “forever chemicals” as their top concern in Verisk’s 2023 Emerging Issues Bracket Challenge
As evidence of forever chemical’s potential harm continues to grow, so does litigation. While lawsuits so far have focused mostly on chemical manufacturers, litigation is continuing to spread to companies that work with forever chemicals. This can include companies making non-stick cookware, carpeting, firefighting foam and even raincoats. With settlements already reaching $1 billion, what should insurers be thinking about when it comes to forever chemicals?
Join Insider Engage, in partnership with Verisk, for a free webinar at 10:30 ET/15:30 BT on June 28 as we explore the implications that forever chemicals hold for insurers.
Discussion questions include:
What are forever chemicals and what are the risks?
What lines of insurance may be impacted?
Could this be the ‘next asbestos’ to face the insurance industry?
How should insurers be responding?
