Q) What do I do if a claim is made against me?
A) When you encounter a claim, including any verbal or written allegations against you, contact Victor and Marsh Canada Limited as soon as you become aware. In addition you should preserve all documentation that could potentially relate to the claim, specifically:
i) If a suit is brought, please attach a copy of the initial legal process (e.g., a Statement of Claim, a Declaration, a Motion or other legal process). If possible, note the date on which you were served.
ii) If no suit is brought but you have received a demand letter, include a copy of the letter and details surrounding the receipt of the letter.
iii) If you become aware of circumstances that could reasonably give rise to a claim or have received oral threats of a lawsuit, please provide a written overview outlining the specific reasons for anticipating a claim to result from such circumstances or threats.
