Directors & Officers Liability insurance protects sports organizations and their members from claims arising out of wrongful acts or errors and omissions. Coverage under this program offered through Chubb Specialty Insurance is provided to any member of the organization while acting in an official capacity on behalf of the team/league and is not limited just to the directors and officers of your association.
The frequency of lawsuits arising out of the play of softball continues to increase each year.
