Second, if you have compensated your agent for the award of fees against him, you do not have coverage for subsequent claims that could be filed against you.

Yes, in your compensation contract, you must choose the category that best fits the agreed compensation category. Your options include: You may be sued for negligence in a case in which you paid compensation.

However, there are two situations in which compensation will influence or may affect the right: activity: General compensation for activities such as an event or activities related to an event, such as a concert or a rental festival: compensation, which deals specifically with a rent pledge: a duty-free intervention in a detention contract that can also be an individual or a company is the party that offers protection.

Otherwise, you violate condition 5.3 (see above) if the conditions you have accepted interfere with our ability to manage your defense.
And that`s a real possibility. Damages and defence costs, for example, are generally much higher in the United States than in Canada. Don`t jeopardize your coverage – resist any request for agreement on possible negligence claims. And since every LAWYER in BC is compensated under the same policy, any lawyer other than a client could consider will work under a similar constraint.

This condition is that you will not accept liability except at your own expense, make a payment, settle a claim or potential right, assume an obligation, help directly or indirectly to assert or prove a claim against you, take other measures that could adversely affect our ability to avoid or minimize damage, accept arbitration proceedings or similar means of resolving a dispute. , renounce any rights or are born without our prior written consent.
