Helping resolve insurance policy claim disputes
Insurance provides a means to mitigate the risk of financial liability for an action or failure to act. A person or entity desiring insurance purchases a policy from an insurance company. The policy is a contract that provides for payment in full or in part for valid claims that comply with the insurance coverage purchased.
To be enforceable, the insurance policy must meet all of the usual requirements of a contract. Additionally, the insured must have an insurable interest in the subject matter of the policy, such as property, life, or health.
Businesses usually carry basic property insurance and commercial liability policies. But they may also carry fidelity insurance, business interruption insurance, and directors and officer's liability insurance.
