    Directors and Officers Liability Insurance

    Does your organization have a Board of Directors or Senior Executives that help provide direction, influence decision making and help craft policy? Are you on such a board? By participating in such a capacity, somebody becomes personally liable for decisions that they make in that role. In light of the many high profile corporate scandals (i.e. Enron, Health South, Madoff) that have exploded since the late 1990s, elected officials have put the blame for these occurrences at the feet of the corporate leaders. Legislative actions have placed a heavy burden on these individuals to ensure the organizations that they oversee are run in a proper manner. Even if an individual acts in a volunteer capacity, and even if the organization is small, the personal assets of the leader(s) may be at stake. Are you asking yourself, “Do I have insurance for that?” Most people know that one component of a typical homeowner’s policy provides liability insurance; however the liability protection provided by such a homeowner’s policy is limited in scope. A homeowner’s policy is designed to respond to “Bodily Injury” or “Property Damage.” It could also be broadened by a “Personal Injury” endorsement which provides a defense against unintentional acts of libel or slander. An umbrella policy could be added to provide an additional limit of liability. These extra precautions are beneficial, and certainly have their place, but may not be helpful in the event of a claim arising from your activities as a board member of an organization. Such […]

    Title Industry Protectors: Your E&O Experts

    I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and the Merriam Agency to you. Our agency specializes in writing Errors & Omissions coverage for Title Agents. In fact, we have an entire department that focuses exclusively on your business. Over the past several years we have seen drastic changes in the underwriting guidelines and appetites of insurance companies writing E&O. Many carriers have non-renewed coverage or made changes to their policy forms like we have never seen before. Having access to virtually every market writing this class of business is a huge advantage, to both our agency and to you, as a valued client. The policy forms, exclusions and endorsements vary from one insurance company to another and are almost impossible for one not in the property and casualty insurance profession to decipher.  Due to the changes in the industry, many clients are fearful of what may happen on their next renewal and are eager to save as much money as possible when time to pay the bill. In doing so, they’re looking at quotes from several carriers. It is important to understand that we do all of that for you . . . you don’t need to worry about comparing policy forms and coverage from one carrier to another, nor do you need to worry about the possible exclusions in relation to your specific business exposure. We do all of the research, analyzing and comparing for you. Our agency has the benefit of having the knowledge, expertise, experience […]
