You get pulled into enough lawsuits, no matter how frivolous...


And your O/E carrier will drop you like a hot potato!



Even if you’re innocent, the defense costs are astronomical!

A zero liability judgment is small consolation when you look at the hours wasted and lawyer fees spent.  (man, I'm really getting nothing done today...)

True… but isn’t that what insurance is for?
In my Condo we sued, but we sued the construction company for bad work (Leaking pipes, bad plumbing, etc…). A lot of time the engineering is fine it is the construction company where the problem lies cutting corners and skimping on costs.
I know some construction companies their insurance does not cover condos.
