Protecting Clients’ Interests in Insurance Law Cases

The lawyers at Willoughby, Stuart, Bening & Cook (WSBC) represent plaintiffs and defendants in matters related to insurance broker and agent liability. WSBC offers strong legal advocacy, whether the client is a policyholder or an insurance industry representative. Since 1991, the firm has acted for high-net-worth individuals, business owners and insurance agents and brokers in cases related to insurance negligence.

Representing Consumers and Businesses

Agents and brokers who commit errors and omissions, engage in fraud, or cause damage to clients through their incompetence can be held accountable for their negligence. WSBC lawyers will aggressively protect their client’s rights when an insurance agent or broker has:

  • Committed errors and omissions
  • Failed to adequately explain insurance policy terms
  • Recommended the wrong kind of insurance
  • Neglected to procure a policy that provided proper coverage
  • Ignored the need to make the insured aware of options and rights
  • Allowed material inaccuracies to remain on applications and forms

Representing Brokers and Agents

Even the most diligent agents and brokers may find themselves embroiled in legal matters initiated by a policyholder. WSBC lawyers will carefully evaluate the documents and evidence in the case and determine the extent of the alleged damages. They will aggressively defend you against allegations of errors and omissions or malfeasance.

Selecting the Best Approach for the Situation

The firm has a longstanding reputation as one that seeks the most cost-effective way to achieve a client’s goals. WSBC lawyers will determine the least costly approach that will still resolve the matter in favor of the client, whether it be mediation, arbitration or litigation.
