Types of Insurance Agent Negligence

You should be able to reasonably count on your insurance agent to serve as your representative to your insurance company. This includes not only giving you accurate information about your coverage, but also communicating with you regarding policy changes, insurance claims, etc. Frustratingly, though, some insurance agents do not uphold their duty to policyholders, potentially causing them to lose out on the coverage they need in the event of a disaster such as a hurricane.

If you found that your insurance agent or provider acted negligently in providing the coverage you are owed, there may be legal steps you can take. The attorneys of Williams Hart can help you understand your rights and options and fight for the payout you deserve.

Common Forms of Insurance Agent Carelessness

There are numerous ways in which an insurance agent might be considered negligent. However, some of the most common forms of insurance agent carelessness include:

  • Failure to adequately explain and disclose policy terms
  • Failure to properly file policy-related paperwork
  • Failure to notify a policyholder of a policy change

Each of these actions or inaction could result in financial distress, as you may not receive the coverage on which you depended. However, a knowledgeable lawyer can help you hold a negligent insurance agent responsible for his or her irresponsible behavior.
