BBA Webinar: Reference Proceedings: What Attorneys Need to Know about Handling First-Party Property Insurance Claims

Monday, April 5, 2021 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM

To register for this event, please log in to the Boston Bar web site.


The BBA presents live webinars and virtual events via Zoom. Please register for this program through your BBA account at least two hours before the start time of the program to receive the Zoom webinar link. 

Your client’s commercial building or house has been damaged or destroyed by a fire, tornado, water infiltration from a storm, or other event.  Or you represent the building owner’s property insurer.  The two sides are far apart on their view of the amount of damages.  Under state law and Massachusetts property insurance policies, that dispute is resolved by a reference proceeding. 

This webinar will discuss:

  • The reference proceeding process.
  • What does a reference proceeding determine?  What does it not determine?
  • Vocabulary:  What is actual cash value, replacement cost value, and depreciation? 
  • Trap for the unwary:  the contractual limitations period for demanding reference.
  • Other deadlines that affect coverage.
