Andrew Allen real estate agent
Andrew Allen, Real Estate Agent Century 21 Christel Realty

Threatening act, physical and/or verbal, which causes a person to reasonably fear for life or safety. For example, if a boxing champion said he was going to hit someone, this would probably cause a reasonably prudent person to fear serious bodily injury. An insured's liability for assault is excluded from all standard liability policies such as the special multi peril insurance (SMP) and the homeowners insurance policy.
