Requesting Liability Insurance Information in Florida

October 15th, 2013

Posted in Business Law

Under Florida Statute §627.4137, you may request a person or entity reveal certain liability insurance information to you. Section 627.4137 of the Florida Statutes states, “Each insurer which does or may provide liability insurance coverage to pay all or a portion of any claim which might be made shall provide, within 30 days of the written request of the claimant, a statement, under oath, of a corporate officer or the insurer’s claims manager or superintendent setting forth the following information with regard to each known policy of insurance, including excess or umbrella insurance:

(a) The name of the insurer.

(b) The name of each insured.

(c) The limits of the liability coverage.

(d) A statement of any policy or coverage defense which such insurer reasonably believes is available to such insurer at the time of filing such statement.

(e) A copy of the policy.”

In addition, the insured is typically required to disclose the name and coverage of each known insurer upon written request.  The insured should forward the request to all affected insurers. The insurer(s) should respond by supplying the above information within 30 days of receipt of the request.  See §627.4137(1), Fla. Stat.  If you are confronted with a situation that may require you to utilize Florida Statute §627.4137, it is advisable that you consult with a licensed Florida attorney.
