If someone sued me as the broker in a situation similar to this I would relish the opportunity to mount a vigorous defence against such an unfounded and frivolous accusation. Michael is correct, there is no insurance product available to brokers for claims such as this, nor should there be. Truckinsure, I am sorry, but I have to disagree with you 100%. It is exactly this type of “sue them all” attitude that has gotten us into this screwed up situation. You sue people to get restitution for a loss, you have suffered, not to somehow “punish” someone for what you think is a lack of attention to your problem. As you said, this would be dismissed in court and as far as setting some sort of precedence, not too many failed cases, actually none, result in a precedent being set. Honestly, I am surprised at your response. Up until now, I had thought your input in this site to be worthwhile and knowledgeable, now, I am not so sure.
