My contractor has a current policy insurance insurance that
My contractor has a current policy for liability insurance insurance that has a million dollar coverage for each occurrence. He has agreed that the workmanship is poor and needs addressing. They basically destroyed in the interior of my home, electrical, floors etc...He has broken some laws in doing so. Been legally deceptive. I have been trying to work with him but in the end he is not wanting to fix ALL the work,just part of the damages. I am well within the time frame to file a lawsuit. We live in louisiana. The contractor, who I thought was very honest, I now know he has lied about many things, perhaps false reports and fraud. With all that said, he wrote me a letter and said he has NO insurance. I confirmed the policy was up to date, but he wrote back he has no E & O coverage ? so he says, no insurance ! What is an E & O policy ? and what would it exclude if I have a claim ? Thank you..Terri

I run a yoga studio and have general liability and
Hello,I run a yoga studio and have general liability and professional liability insurance. My landlord keeps rejecting the insurance stating:Property Insurance certificate is missing. Your current policy does not provide property coverage. A minimum $5,000 coverage including tenants betterments and improvements, sprinkler leakage, glass coverage, equipment breakdown is required.However, all insurance agents tell me that this is landlord's (owner's) responsibility and they do not offer it to leasers that do not own the property. He is threatening to charge me $25/day that I don't have it.What options do I have.
This is ANOTHER question about HOME OWNERS insurance. Most
This is ANOTHER question about HOME OWNERS insurance. Most of the insurance companies have similar policies with little differences so this is a generalized question…not company specific.Here we are NOT talking about property damage or some minor injury, we are asking about a very serious injury which leaves the injured man disabled for life and in a wheelchair. The homeowner has a policy with a limit of $300,000 then an umbrella policy with a limit of $1,000,000. The limits are high and we know the coverage would not go over the limit, but would the homeowner really be covered up to the $1.3 million in each episode?We are trying to understand if a homeowner's policy, in most cases, would cover the homeowner should he be FOUND LIABLE for a serious injury in 3 different cases. In each case the hired worker injures a different type individual. It might be a homeowner trying to get stairs built to his attic and the attic has rotten boards and the worker falls through and breaks his back. It could be all sorts of accidents where the homeowner was found to be at fault. Please consider each case.Now let us consider NOT a man up the street doing the work, but let us consider a man who is working for a small LLC.We hire the LLC to fix something in our house. They send one or two of their workers.The LLC does not have workers comp and is not required by law to have workers comp. Perhaps it has only like 3 employees, so workers comp is not required. In each case, the homeowner is at fault and the injury is very serious.1. First the LLC worker might seriously injure a third party …like a neighbor. The neighbor is now bound to a wheelchair for life. Would the homeowner be covered should he be found to be at fault and thus liable? Up to both limits?2. Secondly, the LLC worker might injure another worker…like accidentally pushing him and he falls thru a rotten attic floor that the homeowner neglected to mend before they climbed up there…the other worker is now bound to a wheelchair. Would the homeowner be covered should he be found to be at fault? Up to both limits?3. Thirdly, the LLC worker might injure HIMSELF, by falling thru the rotten attic for example, to never walk again. Would the homeowner be covered should he be found to be at fault? Up to both limits?
I serve on the Board of Directors nonprofit 501c3 in
I serve on the Board of Directors for a nonprofit 501c3 in Denver. The nonprofit does not fulfill it's original mission though the founder, in her nineties, is present daily. It receives some donations. I have never seen the bylaws, and the annual treasurerreports presented are obviously inaccurate (not from sinister motivations but from, I think, the founder's disinterest in record keeping) and thus I have no accurate information regarding the finances of the organization. Furthermore, the nonprofit operatesout of a building it owns on which it carries no insurance and the roof of this building is close to collapse. My question is: As a board member, what is my legal culpability if the organization is not in compliance with 501c3 regulations and, if someone wereto be injured as a result of the building, could I be successfully held liable? What are all of the potential risks I'm taking by serving on this board?

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in North Carolina doing
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in North Carolina doing Christian based therapy. I am on insurance panels and take self-pay clients as well. I do not take Medicaid or Medicare or Tricare.I am expanding my business to do seminars for the Christian community. These seminars will be on divorce recovery, overcoming eating disorders, practical aspects and recovery from trauma, etc. They will be day-long seminars with a cost of $95-150.My questions:1. I think I need to do an LLC. Could I do this myself through Legal Zoom. I wanted to save my legal fees for my forms review and do as much as I can myself. Is this OK?2. My professional liability insurance covers my work as a therapist, pastoral counselor and "speaking engagements". Should I get another type of insurance for my seminars? General liability? Not sure what kind of insurance to get.3. Am I allowed to advertise my seminars in my clinic office? Can my clients come? Or do I need to keep it completely separate.4. Is there anything that prevents me from tailoring my seminars toward a Christian audience? What protection do I need to be able to offer "Christian based seminars"? I will be doing for-profit business promoting seminars.Thank you!
I just received a fax from my last years general liabilityView more legal questions
I just received a fax from my last years general liability insurance that is claiming they want to audit my company. But they cancelled us at the end of our policy. And we had to get new insurance. We install windows and doors and wanted to add roofing also, but they did not want to keep us if we wanted to add roofing. So, we are with a new company. What will happen if we refuse to do the audit? We had no claims.
