Insurance 101 – Chapter 13 – Volume 21 – Independent Counsel

Independent Counsel

The court of appeal rejected a policyholder’s claim that the insurer should have paid for the policyholder’s counsel. The policyholder argued that whenever the insurer notifies the policyholder that any part of the claim brought against the policyholder falls outside the policy provisions, the insurer must pay for the policyholder’s private counsel.
