If sued, insurance company can settle the case without your consent

IF I AM SUED, CAN MY INSURANCE COMPANY SETTLE THE CASE WITHOUT MY CONSENT?
Free legal information for insurance law @ FreeAdvice.com.

Under most types of liability insurance, the insurance company has the contractual right to settle or defend the case as it sees fit. You normally will have an opportunity to provide input, but the company typically has no obligation to get your consent or approval. A common exception to this involves professional liability policies, such as medical malpractice or architects errors and omissions coverage, under which consent of the insured usually is required for any settlement.
