Significant changes to the medical malpractice section of the digest include clarification as to what constitutes a healthcare liability claim.

Hegel v. The First Liberty Ins. Corp., 778 F. 3d 1214 (11th Cir. 2015): This case provides the industry with a concrete definition of structural damage and provides a means to defend against claims in which insured property has suffered physical damage that does not impair the property's structural integrity. Chase v. Horace Mann Ins. Co., 158 So. 3d 514 (Fla. 2015): Insurers need to ensure that their insureds sign a UM selection/rejection form any time the named insured is changed.
Important changes have taken place regarding Compulsory Insurance Coverage as well as Contribution and Joint & Several Liability. Also the Supreme Court of Appeals has held that a claim involving defective workmanship that results in bodily injury or property damage satisfies an "occurrence" under commercial general liability insurance policies making it subject to applicable policy exclusions. Cherrington v. Erie Ins. Prop. & Cas. Co., 231 W. Va. 470 (2013). This holding is retroactively applicable to pending claims. BPI, Inc. v. Nationwide Mut. Ins. Co., 2015 W. Va. LEXIS 675 (W. Va. 2015).
