An insurance agent or broker is obligated to immediately advise the insurer of a suit served upon its insured. The insured is, similarly, obligated to advise the agent or the insurer, immediately upon being served. Failure to do so can have devastating results that will expose the insured and the agent or broker to massive judgments being entered by default, where the court assumes that the defendant admits all of the allegations of the complaint.
