    Declaration and Obligations 

    Declaration of legal recourses concerning professional liability insurance

    Section 62.2 of the Professional Code stipulates that “a professional must, in accordance with the terms and conditions determined by the board of directors, inform the order of which he is a member of any professional liability claim against him filed with his insurer and of any notice of loss he files with his insurer with respect to professional liability.” 

    This question concerns only legal recourses (Lawsuits, Originating applications) brought against you personally or that you have declared to your insurer since April 1, 2015. This question does not concern formal notices.

    If this situation applies to you, please declare it in your profile, "Prosecutions and Convictions" tab. When declaring it, you must attach a copy of the lawsuit (originating application or counterclairm, etc.). You must provide us with this declaration within 30 days of the service of the concerned court action.

    We invite you to read the article published in the Nov./Dec. 2015 issue of PLAN magazine, entitled "Prejudicial errors - Should you notify your client, your insurer or both?"
