Are criminal cases covered by homeowner's, renter's, or umbrella policies?
Criminal cases are not covered by…
- Homeowner’s policy
- Renter’s policy
- Umbrella policy
Civil suits may be covered by the homeowner, renter or umbrella policy.
You should check with your insurance carrier to verify coverage for civil suits.
Is our bond excess and how does the 'other insurance' clause work?
No, our bond is not excess coverage.
It is primary coverage, but has an ‘other insurance’ clause.
If two policies or bonds happen to be in place to cover concealed carry criminal defense expense reimbursement and both have ‘Other Insurance’ clauses, then our bond would co-insure those legal fees, expenses, and cost costs subject to the bond limit.
If our principal has a permit, is acquitted from a criminal prosecution associated with a legally possessed weapon they used in self-defense, we will reimburse any and all reasonable legal fees, expenses, and court costs up to our bond limit following trial or appeal.
Our bond is not liability coverage.
Are stun guns or tasers covered?
Yes. Our bond covers any weapon (guns, knives, baton, billy club, taser, stun gun) as long as it was legally possessed at the time of the incident and our principal is acquitted of criminal charges.
Are expert witnesses covered?
Yes, if acquittal or charges dismissed.
Does CCW Bond include defense "in the limits" or "outside the limits"?
Our bond only provides for defense reimbursement if acquitted or charges dismissed, up to the amount of the bond penalty.
