Handling Professional Liability Insurance Claims In California

Professional liability insurance — also known as malpractice insurance or errors and omissions coverage — provides coverage for alleged errors made while rendering professional services. Directors and officers coverage is designed to protect individuals acting on behalf of a corporation when sued by a third party or shareholder.

If you are being sued for actions taken in your capacity as a business professional — such as a lawyer or doctor — or as an officer or director, the San Diego insurance lawyers of Buscemi Hallett LLP can help. We invite you to give us a call for a confidential, no-cost consultation.

Legal Assistance With Director And Officer Liability Insurance Disputes

A company may purchase directors' and officers' liability insurance (also known as D&O insurance) to protect the personal assets of its leadership. Without this protection, many businesses would be unable to attract experienced executives, take action to improve the company's fortunes or avoid lawsuits against corporate officers.

Corporate leadership often expects that its D&O policy will provide coverage in the event that legal action is taken against it. When it does not, Buscemi Hallett LLP will aggressively represent the policyholder in court to resolve the dispute.
