Policies and Perceptions of Insurance Law in the Twenty-First Century


Oxford University Press

When claiming for clients, independents owe no duty to insurers except, of course, a duty not to be fraudulent and, possibly, a duty not to make careless misstatements actionable in tort. On the one hand, the reliance placed in practice by some insurers on some independents may be used to argue that independents owe a duty to insurers actionable in tort. On the other hand, if their profession is really threatened with partial extinction, as some people have asserted, perhaps a court would hold that a tort duty would not be ‘fair and reasonable’.
