All is not lost for your client who was not named as an additional insured as required under a contract.  Your client has a breach of contract claim against the procuring party and possibly a negligence claim against the procuring party’s insurance broker.  Your client’s insurer may also have a third-party beneficiary claim against the procuring party to recover the legal fees and settlement/judgment paid in the underlying lawsuit.  To learn more about the rights and remedies of the additional insured, click here to read Brian Roof’s article on the issue, which was published in the February, 2015 issue of the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association’s Bar Journal Magazine.
