Defense Award in Insurance Agent Professional Liability Case

Obtained a non-appealable defense award at binding arbitration in an alleged negligent procurement of insurance case. The plaintiff alleged the insurance agent failed to obtain comparable coverage to the plaintiff’s prior coverage, resulting in an uncovered property damage loss of $220,000. While the arbitrator found that the agent violated his duty of care to the plaintiff, the defense successfully argued that the plaintiff’s own contributory negligence in failing to review and understand his coverage was sufficient to bar any recovery.
