Insurance 101 – Chapter 9 – Volume 30 – Cancellation While Claim Pending

Cancellation While Claim Pending

The California Court of Appeal in Snapp v. State Farm Fire & Casualty Company, 206 Cal. App 2d 827, 24 Cal. Rptr. 44 (1962), expressed its concern with the cancellation of a policy after a continuing loss had occurred and was still occurring. It concluded that the insurer could not absolve itself of the loss until the problem had been rectified or it had paid the full amount of indemnity owed. It did not, as some might argue, conclude that the policy continued after its expiration, only that the loss had changed from a contingent event to an actual event.
