Louisiana Assignment of Benefits Ban a Win for Insureds & Carriers

Louisiana Assignment of Benefits Ban a Win for Insureds & Carriers

Louisiana’s property insurance market has been challenging after the state was hit by record hurricane activity during the 2020 and 2021 seasons. Louisiana suffered from a string of hurricane hits with Laura, Delta and Zeta hitting the state in 2020, followed by Ida in 2021. That heightened hurricane activity generated approximately 800,000 claims in those two years alone, resulting in $25 billion in paid losses that caused insurers to pull back from the Louisiana market (source 4). In fact, 11 insurers writing homeowners coverage in Louisiana were declared insolvent between July 2021 and February 2023. Twelve additional insurers withdrew from the state and 50 companies stopped writing new business in hurricane-prone parishes, creating a capacity crisis. On top of capacity issues, legal system abuse had become a persistent issue in recent years with strict bad faith laws contributing to inflated claims payments and awards (source 1).

Nevada Bans Defense-Within-Limits for Liability Insurance

Nevada Bans Defense-Within-Limits for Liability Insurance

Nevada is taking a chance on a new law that’s upping the ante in the state’s admitted liability insurance market. The Silver State recently became the first to comprehensively ban widely used ‘defense within limits’ provisions from admitted liability insurance policies.
