If your financial future has been threatened as a result of a negligent insurance broker, you may wonder whether you have the ability to recover damages through a lawsuit.

Rightly so.

Your insurance broker has a duty to provide you with effective service when helping you make decisions about your insurance options.

If your insurance broker fails to uphold his or her duty and you are harmed as a result, you may be able to sue them for damages. Read on to learn more.

Suing an Insurance Broker

Proving that an insurance broker’s negligence caused you to sustain damage to your financial future can be difficult, but it is not impossible. In fact, our team has seen success in a number of these types of cases.

There are several tools we use to help prove these types of cases, but typically, there are records that indicate an insurance broker acted negligently. Some of these records include:

  • Emails
  • Text messages
  • Faxed documents
  • Copies of application documents
  • Phone records

However, it is also important to consider what kind of evidence the insurance broker may have against you. The broker may defend his or her case by showing what the result would have been if no mistakes were made.
