The discussion will provide a broad overview of the types of issues that are common in claims by policyholders to the insurers under such policies (most of which have arbitration clauses). The panel will also discuss the claims process in the RWI claims investigation/adjustment and the types of arbitrators that parties may need to resolve disputed RWI claim issues.
