CSK obtained a complete defense verdict in an E&O negligence case seeking $825,000

February 18, 2020

CSK Orlando Partner Robert (Bob) Swift recently obtained a complete defense verdict in an insurance agent errors and omissions (negligence) case seeking $825,000. Our client was sued for negligence and breach of fiduciary duty for selling an insurance policy to a tennis center that contained a comprehensive exclusion for tennis operations.

Plaintiff was severely injured warming up for a match and the insurer denied coverage under the exclusion. Plaintiff had severe, permanent nerve damage to her wrist and hand, and could no longer play tennis or perform routine tasks.

After a 4-day trial, Bob obtained a directed verdict on the fiduciary duty claim and the jury returned a verdict of no negligence after deliberating for approximately 30 minutes.
