Claim process after an employee is injured
Cutting insurance costs is extremely important, but even more important is obtaining a policy that actually provides the coverage needed during a claim. Having an uninsured loss can result in paying hundreds of thousands of dollars in out-of-pocket expenses. Legal costs are at an all-time high. Even if a company wins in court, the cost to fight a claim can leave that company penniless.
Shield National analyzes the policies of all our potential clients, to determine if there are any gaps in coverage that could potentially result in an uninsured claim.
Additional Insured Implementation
Spreading risk is a term used not only in the stock market, but also in insurance. Just because a company provides a service or offers a product that causes bodily injury or property damage to a 3rd party, does not mean that company is the only one held liable in a claim. There are ways a company can spread risk by requesting Additional Insured status among the manufacturers and service providers they work with.
