Legal Precedents Impacting the Insurance Industry within the Past Year:

North Carolina courtesy of Bailey & Dixon, LLP of Raleigh
Under N.C. Gen. Stat. §97-25.6(c)(2), an employer may communicate with the employee's authorized health care provider in writing, without the express authorization of the employee, to obtain relevant medical information not available in the employee's medical records.  Hardison v. Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co., ___N.C. App.___, 776 S.E.2d 898 (2015).
Maryland courtesy of Semmes, Bowen & Semmes of Baltimore
Spangler v. McQuitty has significantly increased the value of personal injury claims in Maryland. Until now, it was commonly believed that personal injuries would result in only one lawsuit: (1) a personal injury claim during the injured party's life; or (2) if the injury was severe enough, a wrongful death action due to the death of the injured party. It is now clear, however, that the injured party and his decedents have the right to bring both lawsuits.
Nevada law requires an insurer to provide independent counsel for its insured when an actual conflict of interest arises between the insurer and the insured. Nevada recognizes that the insurer and the insured are dual clients of insurer-appointed counsel. State Farm Mut. Auto. Ins. Co. v. Hansen, 131 Nev. ___, 357 P.3d 338, 339 (2015).

On April 28, 2016, the Flood Insurance Market Parity and Modernization Act, H.R. 2901, was passed in the U.S. House of Representatives by a vote of 419-0 and is now headed to the U.S. Senate.
