Did Your Insurance Agent or Broker Properly Protect You?
Was your critical illness, commercial insurance or disability insurance policy claim denied? If so, it may be related or caused by your insurance broker’s negligence. Your broker and agent have a duty to act in your best interest to get you the insurance coverage that your unique situation requires. As a paying client, you rely on the expertise of the broker or agent to get you the coverage that will be there when you need it.
If that did not happen, you should ask whether that may be the fault of the agent or broker. Your agent or broker most likely carries errors and omissions insurance that may help cover your denied claim if they were negligent.
In a number of cases from British Columbia and elsewhere in Canada, courts have found that brokers and agents have a strong duty of care to ensure they provide suitable insurance coverage addressing the customer’s unique circumstances*. This is true for both personal and commercial insurance.
