Praedicat’s Litigation Tracker Expansion
Praedicat is excited to announce an important update to our litigation tracker platform, initially launched in CoMeta to help casualty carriers navigate the flood of complaints filed against companies alleging negligence in exposing workers and consumers to COVID-19.
Now our clients can access important litigation information around three additional mass litigations: PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances), toxic baby food (heavy metals in baby food), and paraquat (an herbicide alleged to cause Parkinson’s disease). The litigation tracker platform, which monitors U.S. courts for casualty-relevant litigation complaint by complaint, enables (re)insurers to stay abreast of and respond to these fast-moving litigation events. Clients receive trends in filed complaints and detailed case information on causes of action, targeted industries, named defendants, attorneys involved and more, all delivered through our intuitive software.

The long-term plan for the litigation tracker is to capture more emerging casualty-relevant litigation in its earliest stages so that clients can know which of the hundreds of sources of potential litigation monitored by Praedicat have resulted in actual litigation events and then track how those litigation events unfold over time.
Want to learn more about how the expanded litigation tracker can sharpen underwriting and claims strategies, quantify exposure to current litigation, and manage the risk of litigation that has yet to materialize. Get in touch!
