Wolf vs. Progressive

In the case of Wolf vs. Progressive, 35Fla. L. Weekly D733(Fla. 1st DCA 2010), the District Court held that a Plaintiff who sued for UM Benefits was not entitled to them simply because he did not receive notice of the availability of UM Benefits on a six month notice of renewal.  According to the 1st District, “We do not read the plain language of section 627.727(1)2 require that notice of UM coverage availability be sent more frequently than annually, even where, as here, the insured’s policy renews every six months.”  Clearly this ruling is favorable to insurers in the State of Florida.
