The Duty to Defend Under A Homeowner’s Policy for Automobile-Related Incidents: SCC Confirms Analysis of Pleadings and Narrow Reading of Exclusions Apply
Justice Perell, in a recent Superior Court decision on a Rule 21 motion, confirmed that insurance adjusters do not owe a duty of good faith to an insured that is independent of any duty owed by the insurer. As such, adjusters of insurance companies, when acting strictly in their capacity as employees, cannot be held personally liable for breaching a duty of good faith. They can only be held liable in tort as individuals if their actions are themselves tortious and exhibit a separate identity or interest from the insurer.
