Committee News

From the Professionalism and Ethics Committee:

Even when the insurer offers its policy limits, claimants often wish to verify the lack of other sources of recovery before agreeing to give a release. This may involve inquiries about such things as other insurance, whether the insured was acting in the course of some employment or agency, and/or other assets that might be subject to execution. If the insurer fails to notify its insured about such requests and that failure causes a settlement opportunity to be lost, the insurer may be liable for any resulting excess judgment.
