How Are Bond Claims Handled For Beauty Pageant Operator Surety Bonds?
Unlike insurance, which protects your business, Beauty Pageant Operator Surety Bonds protect your clients. If an individual is harmed due to the principal’s actions or any violation of the governing laws, the harmed party can file a claim with the surety company for relief.
If the claim is valid, the surety will pay up to the penal sum of the bond to resolve the claim. The principal is then required to reimburse the surety for all monies paid out, including any attorney fees incurred by the surety in the defense of the claim.
Claims can be detrimental to your business. Not only do they cause financial harm, they make it very difficult, if not impossible, to get bonded again.
