The “duty to defend” under an insurance policy refers to the insurance company’s duty to pay attorney’s fees and costs during a case. This defense obligation in insurance law is extremely important to any policyholder involved in litigation where insurance coverage is in place. It is also equally important that both policyholder and defense attorney understand the relevant wording of an insurance policy that creates the duty to defend, the scope of the duty, and what actions may be necessary to bring the duty to defend into play.
