    Expanding the Requirements of Jordan: the rejection of UM/UIM coverage by Spanish-speaking insureds"

    The validity of UM/UIM rejections, written in English, by Spanish-speaking insureds is an issue that is flooding the Courts and perplexing insurers. Join us as we discuss the numerous legal questions surrounding this issue, including: Can a Spanish-speaking insured validly reject UM/UIM coverage when the rejection forms are written in English? Is the position that Spanish forms are necessary an attempt to expand Jordan’s requirements for a valid UM/UIM rejection? Will an insured’s subjective understanding, regardless of the information provided in the policy documents, preclude an insurer from ever enforcing a UM/UIM rejection as to a Spanish-speaking insured?

     

    The conversation will occur at lunchtime on

    Wednesday, May 30th

    12:00 p.m. MDT

    Richard Padilla and Alicia Santos will lead a discussion on

    Expanding the Requirements of Jordan: 
    the rejection of UM/UIM coverage by Spanish-speaking insureds"


    Members are invited to dial in over the lunch hour. These calls are not CLE, just an opportunity to connect with each other. If you have a burning issue you’d like to discuss, let us know at nmdefense@nmdla.org.



    *Upon registration all registrants will receive an email confirmation containing the call in number and access code. 

    Please contact NMDLA at nmdefense@nmdla.org or by phone 505.797.6021 with questions.
