Brown v. American Standard Insurance Company of Wisconsin (January 24, 2019 WL 302838)
Cancellation of issued insurance policies must be based on accurate information.
Plaintiff Michael Brown purchased a motorcycle insurance policy from American Standard. Soon after, American Standard mailed a notice to Mr. Brown canceling the policy because he did not have a valid driver’s license. Mr. Brown did not dispute the cancellation. He was then in a motorcycle accident and sustained serious injuries. When Mr. Brown made a claim for benefits pursuant to the American Standard uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage, American Standard denied the claim due to lack of coverage.
