Think all professional liability brokers provide the same service? Guess again? You want someone who has access to the majority of carriers – including surplus lines if you have a challenging record. Further, you want seasoned experts guiding you on the nuts and bolts of the different offerings. We have had tough conversations with clients who learned their carrier went belly up. And these carriers were not admitted to provide insurance in the state, so there’s no access to a backup guaranty fund.
The time to learn this is not after you’ve been sued. It’s before you make the purchase. What about consent to settle? Hammer clauses? Other add-ons, like cyberliability coverage? Employment practices liability coverage? Umbrella coverage? If you work with a talented broker, they will guide you on all this, and more. And frequently, the cost to you is LESS.
