Insurance agents and brokers are in the business of transacting insurance with insurers on behalf of their clients. Unless they take on a fiduciary responsibility, they’re only expected to obtain the insurance requested by the prospect. But after a loss, insureds who incur a loss greater than the limits purchased may try to recover the losses from the agent, who they claim should have forced them to buy more insurance.
