This is why it is Important to Disclose All Information When Shopping for Louisiana Tow Truck Insurance.
In last week’s article we discussed the legal contractual position of insurance companies when it comes to disclosing accurate information on your application.
In the event inaccurate details are given to the company, they have the legal right to deny any claims.
Let’s see how this happened to one fictitious trucking company.
Example: Lowball Trucking Insurance Company only insures moving companies, owner operators, and tow truck companies when their radius of operation is less than 350 miles.
Atlas Trucking Company’s radius of operation is 750 miles, but they receive a quote from Slick Willie who sells insurance for Lowball Trucking Insurance Company.
Atlas Trucking tells Slick Willie their radius of operation is 750 miles. Slick Willie, either because of incompetence or sneakiness, types in 350 miles on the application sent to Lowball Trucking Insurance Company.
Lowball Trucking Insurance Company assumes the information is accurate on the application and issues the policy to Atlas Trucking Company.
One of the drivers working for Atlas Trucking Company is involved in an accident resulting in a fatality. A claim is submitted to Lowball Trucking Insurance Company.
After their investigation, Lowball Trucking Insurance Company issues a claim denial and a notice that they are voiding the policy from its inception because a material misrepresentation was made on the application indicating that the Atlas Trucking Company’s radius of operation was 350 miles or less when in reality it was double that.
A $2 million judgement is assessed against Atlas Trucking and the company files for bankruptcy protection.
