Directors’ and Officers’ Liability Insurance Basics

For those acting as directors or officers for an organization, there is a high level of responsibility exercised in the process of carrying out job duties. Because of their position, officers and directors are required to act in the best interests of their organization, and also take on certain liabilities in connection with that responsibility. From a legal perspective, these individuals can be held personally liable for failure to fulfill their legal obligations, whether acting as an individual or as the organization. Carrying an adequate Directors’ and Officers’ liability policy can provide piece ­of ­mind for those in these positions of authority.

Directors and Officers Can Be Held Liable

Being the director or officer of a company is an important position, and great responsibility can fall on their shoulders. Directors themselves can be found personally liable for mistakes and ignorance does not remove liability. Learning the extent of your legal liability is an important first step when considering an insurance policy of this nature.

    Shortly after moving my business to OTC my car was involved in an accident and there was a dispute about liability. Fortunately, Jack was on my side. He was very considerate and professional. What was determined a closed case by the other parties was reopened because of due diligence.
