CGL policies are written with recommendations that make the number of events very important, especially in cases of continued losses. Deductibles or self-insured retentions are charged based on the number of events or the number of claims. Insurance restrictions can apply individually per event, individually per loss, individually per claim or in total over a one-year period. The test applied is usually objective. [ Uniroyal, Inc. v. Home Insurance Company 707 F. Supp. 1368 (1988); Champion International Corporation v. Continental Casualty Company 546 F. 2d 502 (1976), Cargill, Inc. v. Liberty Mutual Insurance Company 488 F. Supp. 49 (1979) Affirmed 621 F. 2d 275 (1980); Mason v. Home Insurance Company 177 Ill. App. 3d 454, 532 N.E. 2d 526 (1988); 64 A.L.R. 4th 688.]
A trigger damage in fact for an underlying claim can be found as early as the first exposure to asbestos or silica, and can continue successively through the plaintiff's death or the date of application, whichever occurs. earlier. [ Danaher Corp. v. Travelers Indem . Co., 414 F.Supp.3d 436 (SDNY 2019)]
I Lombard v. Sewerage and Water Board of New Orleans 284 So.2d 905 (La. Its offspring have the courts in exposure cases applied the "effect" test as opposed to the "cause test" to determine the number [ Thebault V. American Home 2015-0800 (La. App. 4Cir) 4/20/16), 195 So . 3d 113.]
A common allocation method is called the "time at risk" method, where each insurer is responsible for the pro rata share of the time that the insurer's policy was in force during the entire time period during which the insured suffered damage. For example, Edison Co. Of New York, Inc. v. Allstate Ins. Co., 774 NE2d 687, 695 (NY 2002)] confirmed the trial court's distribution of loss through the "time-on-risk" method, while "does not exclude [ing] pro rata distribution between insurers of other methods."
