Insurance Issues Around Dobbs

The Reed Smith firm poses several unanswered questions for risk managers and legal counselors to consider.  Among these, will any of the liabilities, including defense costs, be covered? If lawsuits assert claims arising from alleged harm to a fetus, would those claims trigger coverage for liabilities arising from bodily injuries? If laws are passed banning companies from doing business in a state for providing benefits that facilitate abortion services, will that prompt shareholder lawsuits or suits from interested parties who depend on the company’s services?
