In the July 2018 edition of the Orange County Lawyer, The Orange County Bar Association published an article written by Robert J. McKennon and Stephanie L. Talavera of the McKennon Law Group PC. The article examines the liability implications of the relationship between insurers and various types of intermediaries, such as insurance agents and brokers, employers and third-party beneficiaries. As the article explains, depending on the nature of the relationship between the insurer and others involved in the process, the insurer may be held liable for the actions of others who act as intermediaries in the insurance process. The article gives tips in rendering insurers vicariously liable for the acts of the intermediaries in the insurance process.
Since the writing of the article, Stephanie L. Talavera has left the McKennon Law Group PC.
