Insurance Agent/Broker Malpractice

In general, insurance brokers and agents are skilled and capable professionals who help individuals and businesses obtain the appropriate type and amount of insurance for their personal and/or business needs. However, in some cases, a denied insurance claim (or the lack of appropriate coverage in the first place) is the result of negligence on the part of the insurance agent. Insurance agents have a responsibility to be competent and deal in good faith with their clients. When they fail to meet these obligations, a policyholder's claim can be denied when coverage is needed the most.

If a real crisis should arise and you must rely upon your insurance coverage, errors made by your insurance agent can leave you stranded and at a severe financial and emotional strain. An error made by an insurance agent, whether intentional or not, can lead to denial of the coverage you need or even cancellation of your insurance policy.

Errors by insurance agents can result in serious financial losses for policyholders. Insurance agent negligence can take many forms. Some common examples include the following:

  • Failure to adequately explain the terms of the policy
  • Failure to write a policy that provides sufficient or correct coverage
  • Including inaccurate information on an insurance form
  • Failure to provide the insurance company with all necessary forms
  • Failure to advise you of your rights and options
