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 officer’s coverage are 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, a doctor, an officer or a 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 strategy consultation.
Typically, these policies are claims made and reported policies that require careful, thoughtful and timely action when the business becomes aware of a potential claim. It is important that you consult with a legal adviser to determine the rights and obligations under your policy.
Legal Assistance With Directors And Officers Liability Insurance Disputes
A company may purchase directors and officer’s 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 defend lawsuits against corporate officers.
Corporate leadership often expects that its D&O policy will provide coverage if legal action is taken against its officers or members. When it does not, Buscemi Hallett LLP will aggressively represent the policyholder in court to resolve the dispute.
