Nevada Construction Defect Protocol

In 2003 and 2004, a group of CPR members and other insurance companies met over a period of months to discuss the unique challenges confronted by construction defect insurers in Nevada. Some of these challenges reflect regulatory and statutory provisions unique to Nevada, and others were presented by case law.

The group settled upon a Protocol that it endorsed by which counsel for general contractors or developers might initiate a stepped procedure to alert claimants’ counsel and representatives of subcontractors in a timely manner, and to manage both the negotiations with the claimants and the allocations among the putative defendants and indemnitors in an efficient and just manner.
