Subrogation Release

A subrogation release by the insured specifies that the insurer is entitled to the right the insured has to collect from any person or entity deemed responsible for a specific loss.

The release effectively reimburses the insurance company for any expenses paid in a settlement prior to a subrogation claim or settlement.  Additional in assures that the client is not able to double dip or collect twice from the same incident.

Car Insurance Quotes are not a Commodity

on target to reducing the cost of insurance. TruePoint Insurance, we are insuringky.comI’ve heard it said the car insurance quotes are the same, the only thing different is the price.  I don’t think that is true but my thoughts are not important.  You alone should be the one to decide how to insure the risk that is created by owning an automobile.

 

Consider the following questions:

  • Do you know how much liability coverage your current auto insurance policy provides?
  • Do you think having Kentucky car insurance that includes coverage for uninsured or underinsured motorist is important?
  • Is your car insured?

The third question is easy.  If you answered anything other than Yes, then I certainly hope that it is parked.  Unfortunately, there are lots of individuals in Kentucky that are driving cars that do not have insurance coverage in place.  The number is alarming; it is estimated that over 15% of Kentucky cars on the road have no insurance. 

This is a good segway into question two.  If you think that the number of uninsured drivers is alarming, how many underinsured vehicles are on the road.  The answer to that is, potentially everyone.  The state minimum requirements for bodily injury are $25,000 per individual capped at $50,000 if multiple

I’ve heard it said the car insurance quotes are the same, the only thing different is the price.  I don’t think that is true but my thoughts are not important.  You alone should be the one to decide how to insure the risk that is created by owning an automobile.

Before moving consider the following questions:

  • Do you know how much liability coverage your current auto insurance policy provides?
  • Do you think having Kentucky car insurance that includes coverage for uninsured or underinsured motorist is import?
  • Is your car insured?

uninsured motorist, underinsured motoristThe third question is easy.  If you answered anything other than Yes, then I certainly hope that it is parked.  Unfortunately, there are lots of individuals in Kentucky that are driving cars that do not have insurance coverage in place.  The number is alarming; it is estimated that over 15% of Kentucky cars on the road have no insurance.

If you answered NO to the second question, I would suggest you reconsider.  With over 15% of Kentucky drivers not insured and even more underinsured, your current car insuance is just that.  It’s wrong or at least missing a critical component, like the r in insurance.

With that said, I think we have enough information already to say that you the answer to the first question should be YES.  I will close with this, If you don’t know how your auto liability insurance limits or if and to what level your covered in the event your hit by an uninsured or underinsured driver, then you’re not making your own risk management decisions, and it’s most likely because you’re not being given the opportunity.  The risk associated with your home, auto, business or anything else is yours.  Click the link below to learn more about TruePoint’s client-focused approach.  You deserve an agency that values educating as opposed to selling.

Commercial Insurance-Vacant Buildings

Vacant Commercial BuildingVacancy Provision

In some ways, personal insurance and commercial insurance have common threads.¬† But don’t kid yourself, getting your arms around commercial insurance is a considerable challenge.

Under a commercial property policy, coverage is significantly different for buildings that are vacant for extended periods. Usually, certain types of coverage are completely eliminated during the vacancy. Insurance companies are interested in protecting ongoing businesses and premiums are based upon active occupancy. Continued, full coverage may be provided, but that is only at the insurance company’s discretion. If a vacant risk is accepted, it usually means paying more premium.

Definitions

Before any coverage restrictions can be imposed, the insurance company must define exactly what they mean by vacancy and the definition is affected by the type of occupancy:

Tenant¬†– When the insured is a tenant and the policy covers that insured’s property interest, the definition of building is the unit or suite¬†Business Space for Lease in Lawrenceburg, KY that has been rented or leased to the tenant. That building is considered vacant when it no longer contains enough business personal property to conduct the customary operations of the insured tenant.

Building Owner Or General Lessee РWhen the insured is a building owner or general lessee, building is defined as the entire building. The building is considered vacant UNLESS a specified percentage of the total square footage is rented to a lessee or sub-lessee and used by the lessee or sub-lessee to conduct its customary operations OR is used by the building owner to conduct customary operations.

Buildings Under Construction РBuildings that are under construction or renovation are not considered to be vacant.

Vacancy Provisions

Now that vacancy has been defined, the vacancy condition can be stated. If the building where loss or damage occurs has been vacant (see definition above) for more than 60 consecutive days before the loss:

  • the insurance company will pay NOTHING if the loss was caused by vandalism, sprinkler leakage, glass breakage, water damage, or theft (including damage from attempted theft).
  • the insurance company will reduce any loss amount by 15% if the claim is due to any Covered Cause of Loss not listed above.

Vacancy PermitReturn to TruePoint Home Page

When vacancy does occur, many companies, for an additional premium, will add a provision (sometimes called a Vacancy Permit). This form changes the policy wording so that it provides coverage for the property during specific time periods when the applicable premises are vacant.
