The Price of Plastic Pollution: Social Costs and Corporate Liabilities

The cost to society from plastic pollution exceeds $100 billion per year, according to new research which sheds fresh light on the growing global plastics crisis. The harm to human health is just as damaging as plastic pollution’s more widely-recognized impact on the environment, the research shows.

A detailed study by the Minderoo Foundation and undertaken in conjunction with Praedicat, and legal firm Clyde & Co,  shows the range of harmful impacts of plastic could trigger potentially colossal liability claims.

The Rise of Litigation Finance Transforming US Court Environment

Ten years ago, there was no such thing as casualty cat modeling.

Now, adopting casualty cat modeling is an integral part of an insurer’s ability to manage emerging risks like PFAS and addictive software design. According to Praedicat CEO, Robert Reville in his interview with AM Best TV at Monte Carlo, the (re)insurance industry needs to employ an exposure-based approach to reserving and pricing to better prepare itself against the surge of litigation finance that is transforming the US court environment.

Pesticides: The New Pharma?

In Praedicat’s latest Carrier Management article, Dr. Adam Grossman and Dr. Robert Reville discuss a wave of pesticide litigation that draws deep comparisons to the litigation against pharma companies in the 1990s and 2000s. The plaintiffs’ bar and litigation funders certainly recognize the recent success of existing pesticide-related cases, but with proper rigor and the right tools, pesticide risk can still be an opportunity for profitable and sustainable underwriting.

Emerging
Risk Framework

Insights on emerging risks are great but taking
action on them is even better.

Let’s move your business from insights to action.

Our Emerging Risk Framework breaks emerging risk into three phases: emerging interest, emerging damage and emerging litigation. Depending on the phase of emergence, our methodology recommends specific business actions to take and who should take them.  Because our framework is embedded in Praedicat software – with access to tools like the litigation tracker, company risk score, and library of realistic disaster scenarios – understanding the information is intuitive and taking action is easier than ever.
