Tony Tunney and Robert Elworth, HeplerBroom partners successfully defended plaintiff’s appeal

Tony Tunney and Robert Elworth successfully defended plaintiff’s appeal of the trial court’s order entering a JNOV in their favor.  The jury trial in May 2014 resulted in a $467,000 verdict for plaintiff against his insurance agent.  Plaintiff claimed that his coverage was denied by American Family because his agent failed to make sure that the information on the application was true and accurate.  The trial court entered a JNOV based on a lack of duty owed by the agent.  More good law for the insurance producers when we are defending these E&O claims.  Office Furnishings v A.F. Crissie & Co.,  2015 IL App (1st) 141724.
