Our firm just settled a disability case for an NFL player who was disabled from an injury for mid-seven figures. His insurer, a private insurer who issued a disability policy which paid if he were disabled from playing professional football in the NFL, denied his claim, but we were able to overcome its position and get a very favorable settlement for our client. The terms are confidential. We worked with our colleagues, Bostwick & Peterson, San Francisco attorneys, on the case.
Employment practices liability (EPL) coverage protects your business from certain types of claims by employees against co-employees or the employer for various wrongs that are committed in the workplace, such as sexual harassment.
There are many exceptions to most employment practices liability insurance policies. In general, these exceptions are circumstances in which this coverage may not apply.
When such claims are made, we can provide the guidance and representation for you to make sure the insurance company lives up to its obligations to defend you in any lawsuit and provide the protection you have paid for.
