We know Attorneys.
Coast General Insurance Brokers provides general liability insurance for your law firm. Whether you specialize in contract law, real estate, or criminal defense, we have a policy for your business.
Legal malpractice insurance provides attorneys with liability coverage for financial loss suffered by third parties arising from acts, errors, and omissions in providing professional legal services. Fraud, intentional and criminal acts, bodily injury (BI), and property damage (PD) are excluded from coverage. However, most of the policies provide coverage for personal injury (PI) perils (i.e., defamation, invasion of privacy) since allegations of such acts occur frequently in law firms. Lawyers’ malpractice insurance policies are written with a claims-made coverage trigger.
