After a fire destroys your home, you call your insurance broker and learn you won’t be able to rebuild because the agent failed to advise you of the difference between replacement cost and market value of your home. Are you out of luck?

What is insurance broker negligence?

Errors, omissions, negligence and incompetence on the part of an insurance broker, agent or underwriter can result in a lack of insurance coverage that leaves policyholders at risk.
