Williams v. Hilb, Rogal & Hobbs Insurance Serv., No. B203691

By FindLaw Staff on September 10, 2009 3:25 PM

In a negligence action against an insurance agency for failing to include workers compensation in the insurance package arising from a multimillion dollar judgment against plaintiff for injuries suffered by employee in a catastrophic fire, trial court's judgment is affirmed where: 1) the evidence amply supported the court's finding that defendant's employee failed to use the skill and care a reasonably careful insurance professional would have used in similar circumstances; 2) the action is not barred by the statute of limitations; and 3) the trial court did not err in refusing to assign fault to the plaintiff.
