What you need to know about filing a business insurance claim if you are summoned

If you are summoned and file an action under your business insurance policy, the majority of policies will ask that your insurance company defend and pay for all of your legal costs. There are other things to keep in mind. Some of these include new endorsements which can affect you when your insurance renews your policy as this may include new endorsements that can cause your insurer defends you in a legal action. Also, if insurer thinks your policy may not cover your claim, the company will send you a written agreement which is known as “Reservation of Rights.” This usually informs you that you are held accountable for compensation for the defense costs to the company if it later finds the claim is not covered.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
