Los Angeles Daily Journal Publishes Article by Robert J. McKennon Entitled “Court says insurer can’t dodge coverage through ‘technical escape hatch’”

On October 26, 2018, the Los Angeles Daily Journal published an article written by Robert J. McKennon of the McKennon Law Group PC.  The article examines a recent case by the California Court of Appeal, which held that the notice-prejudice rule precluded the denial of life insurance benefits based upon the insured’s failure to give timely notice of disability as required under a disability premium waiver provision in the life insurance policy.  Insurers often attempt to argue that a technical violation of the notice requirements voids their claim where there exists no prejudice to them.  This recent opinion helps to reinforce the notice-prejudice rule in California and helps to protect insureds.  For a full view of the article, read here.
