Was An Insurance Agent Negligent?

When an insurance agent makes a mistake in obtaining insurance coverage and the policyholder subsequently suffers a loss, the policyholder can be left holding the bag. But the policyholder may still have a course of action against the insurance agent and possibly the insurer itself.

At The Law Office of Samuel G. Livingston, P.C., we represent policyholders in cases involving insurance agent negligence, errors and omissions. Our firm has a record of success in this complex area of law, and we work diligently to obtain results for our clients.

We represent policyholders in cases involving:

  • Failure to submit an insurance application
  • Failure to obtain the right type of loss coverage
  • Failure to obtain the appropriate level of coverage
  • Failure to renew an existing policy
  • Other errors and omissions claims

Most insurance agent negligence cases involve independent insurance agents or brokers who sell multiple lines of insurance, although agents who represent single insurance companies can also make these types of mistakes.

In Watts v. State Farm, we represented a homeowner when a State Farm agent failed to increase her fire loss coverage after she had requested it. Our firm was able to obtain a settlement of $3.75 million to resolve a property loss of $300,000.
