Unconditional Settlement Clause

Unconditional Settlement Clause


A provision found in professional liability policies that requires the insured to approve all settlements proposed by an insurer. Under such provisions, an insured can reject an insurer's proposal and, unlike the standard "blackmail settlement clause," incurs no liability if the claim is ultimately settled or adjudicated for a larger amount.
