Advertising Disclosure Email Disclosure

Where an insurance policy requires that written notice be given to its “agent,” oral notice to a broker who is not an agent of the insurer is not sufficient.

January 1, 2011
Rockland Exposition, Inc. v. Great American Assurance Co., 2010 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 103267 (2010)

The policy specified that notice of a claim must be given to “any agent of ours” within the state and that such notice must be written. Where the insured provided oral notice of a claim to its insurance broker, who was not an agent of the insurer, such notice was not sufficient under the express terms of the policy.
