We even provide incentives to encourage early reporting of a problem:
- Potential claims expenses such as attorneys’ fees are not charged against the deductible or policy limit
- Deductibles are reduced by 50% (up to $50,000) for early reporting of a potential claim during the policy period in which it becomes known, or use of formal mediation to attempt to resolve a claim
- A FOCUSED AND ACTIVE DEFENSE: CLAIMS EXPERTISE
Claims situations can be extremely stressful. With your practice and reputation at stake, it is easy to imagine the worst. In the event that a matter turns into a claim, CAMICO is with you every step of the way.
