    Articles

    Hartford Partner Don Frechette is quoted about potential coverage issues and questions related to Hurricane Harvey.

Further, underwriters have adjusted their policy wording on business interruption policies to better clarify what is or is not covered. For example, many policies limit coverage to a single covered tier.”
