Insurance Malpractice

Ty Taber

Jason Covault

In May 2017, Ty Taber and Jason Covault settled an insurance-producer malpractice claim with a national insurer and its local agent who failed to offer UM/UIM coverage on an umbrella policy. After the policyholder was tragically killed when struck by an underinsured motorist, the insurance company denied UM/UIM coverage on the umbrella policy, but could not produce any of the mandatory documents required by the Arizona Department of Insurance to prove that it had discussed UM/UIM with the policyholder.
