Kelley Kronenberg Partner Jake Huxtable Obtains Non-Binding Arbitration Victory
Kelley Kronenberg’s Partner and Business Unit Leader, Jake D. Huxtable, successfully obtained a non-binding arbitration victory on behalf of Frontline Insurance in an assignment of benefits (“AOB”) suit over a denied late reported Hurricane Irma claim.
The Insured reported the loss just a few days before the three-year statute of limitations and the subject property was subsequently sold. No services or permits were pulled by the Assignee.
The arbitrator found that there was no competent evidence to overcome the presumption of prejudice. Frontline was found as the prevailing party based on late notice and the presumption of prejudice
