Enders Joins Peers
Governor Wolf and the Pennsylvania Insurance Department recently made several public statements regarding provisions in many types of insurance policies that could exclude coverage for businesses or individuals “engaging in illegal acts or conduct”. We believe that most policyholders recognize that insurance, in general, does not provide coverage for illegal or criminal acts, regardless of the current COVID-19 pandemic or measures that have been put in place in response.
While our elected officials debate the politics and impact on their constituents, our team remains steadfastly committed to educating our clients. We concur with our peers at Gunn Mowery, Horst Insurance, McConkey, Murray and Susquehanna Insurance that an early move from the Red Phase to Yellow Phase is a legal matter, with unintended consequences to individual insurance policies.
With patience and thoughtful discourse we can all survive and find new ways to thrive.
