Examples or Scenarios

A healthcare consulting company was sued alleging that software developed by the insured technology company malfunctioned and resulted in errors in submitting claims to insurance companies for reimbursement. Claimant alleged if the software worked properly, the claims would have been covered by insurance. Beazley was able to assist the insured in negotiating defense counsel rates as well as a lower than expected settlement. 

A software company developed a platform for a telecommunications company to analyze their customers’ broadband usage. The telecommunications company experienced an issue with the platform that led to the incorrect recording of the data usage. As a result, almost 100,000 customers had their broadband data usage incorrectly recorded. After the telecommunications company settled with a regulator to compensate the impacted subscribers, Beazley worked with the insured software company to retain expert defense counsel and resolve the matter.
