Allegations and incidents of abuse are usually complex, highly sensitive and time-critical. Organizations, most of which will never have dealt with such situations, can feel unprepared and overwhelmed at the prospect of managing their response and the multitude of issues suddenly confronting them.
However, the onus is upon the organization to act quickly and decisively. The nature and speed of the response are everything. If handled well, the response can limit the distress caused, as well as the risk of serious reputational and financial damage.
If an organization experiences an incident, Beazley can deploy experts to support an insured through the initial crisis period.
- C$50,000 sub limit available
- First dollar coverage (no self insured retention applicable)
Beazley has partnered with several firms (see Service Providers), all highly experienced and expert in their respective fields, to address the many operational and reputational challenges that organizations might face in the event of a crisis situation.
While the service providers’ fees and expenses will be met by Beazley up to the sublimited amount, the service providers will be engaged directly by the insured, to represent the insured’s interests.
