Insurance Coverage

Withdrawal of Defense – Our client owned a number of apartment complexes. A tenant at one project claimed to have been injured while walking on the lawn. The client timely tendered notice of the claim to the insurer, which did nothing, apparently waiting for a lawsuit. The client then received notice that a lawsuit had been filed and served, and then received notice that a default was being entered, but failed to send a copy of those notices to the insurer.
