Breach of Fiduciary Duties – Insurance Agents
A fiduciary duty between an insurance agent and a customer is a relationship based on trust and good faith and requires that the agent acts in the best interest of the customer. A standard of care is established between these two parties that must be maintained, regardless of personal interests. If the agent is negligent in his or her actions toward a customer, whether a valid insurance claim is intentionally denied or the agent uses false and misleading information to manipulate a customer, a lawyer should be consulted with to advise you of your legal options.
At Amaro Law Firm, we have 22 years of experience in commercial litigation and have assisted countless clients that have found themselves in this type of situation. Mr. Amaro previously worked for a Houston insurance defense firm so is very familiar with the tactics that some insurance companies take to prevent a deserved claim from being paid. This has given him a unique understanding of how to battle such tactics.
