Insurance Agent Fraud or Negligence - Solutions
When an insurance denial occurs, it may be the fault of the agent or broker who sold the policy. When the unfortunate situation of insurance agent negligence or fraud occurs, we make sure to fully understand the facts and law in order to most effectively represent our clients and try to obtain the full amount of damages that they are entitled to. We obtain a detailed account of the communications between the agent and the insured to verify whether or not there is a claim. This is because what was said or written between the agent and insured can be of critical importance. We are also highly knowledgeable about relevant legal principles, allowing us to construct successful claims against negligent insurance agents with the aim of obtaining the necessary protection for our clients.
Under New Jersey and New York insurance law, an insurance agent or broker is not liable for each and every mistake or misunderstanding that occurs during the application process for an insurance policy. In fact, courts are wary of placing too much responsibility on insurance agents or brokers to correctly advise and guide their customers. However, when an insurance agent or broker has acted carelessly or negligently, or has committed fraud, and the insured is caused to suffer financial and perhaps emotional harm as a result, there may be a successful claim. In these instances, we are here to help.
