Why is a partner in a partnership firm not covered by a package policy when he is using the firm car for firm business purpose? Has the insurance committed deficiency of service by issuing such a policy in the first place? We also need to see what does your car policy says about coverage, who are all covered in your policy as you pay them premium every year before we can advise you on this query.
