Policy Coverage Issues

When The Policy Is Not As Clear As It Seemed

It's the first question your customers ask about your policies in Louisiana, "What does it cover?" It's an important question for them because they want to know when they are protected and when they are on their own. It's an even more important question for you, because you want your customers to know and understand what they are getting.

Still, it seems that even when you think everything is clear, there are still times when customers are unclear about what their policy covers. This confusion can quickly lead to policy coverage disputes and accusations about denied claims.

The attorneys at Kinchen Walker Bienvenu Bargas Reed & Helm, LLC, can help you understand the claim against you and what your next steps need to be in order to move forward.

Understanding The Duty To Defend

Included in any policy coverage issue comes a duty to defend. This is especially critical in a Louisiana claim where there is a direct-action statute.

Understanding the ins and outs of both of these issues can be complicated. Talking to a lawyer with experience in insurance defense can help you work through claims that are in progress and help you avoid future claims by making adjustments to your current standard agreements.
