GMR partner, Harlan Schreiber presented at the National Insurance Crime Bureau “NICB” dialogue meeting in Melville, New York on October 17th. Harlan provided a legal update on current case law developments in the field of No-Fault coverage issues and how they will affect the SIU community.
Harlan chairs GMR’s no-fault-team. Harlan has taken hundreds of examinations under oath, tried scores of cases in New York City and its adjoining counties, and argued dozens of appeals. He specializes in complex coverage issues raised by no-fault claims. Among his most notable successes is Unitrin Advantage Ins. Co. v. Bayshore Physical Therapy, 82 A.D.3d 559 (1st Dep’t 2011), where an appellate court recognized, for the first time, that coverage based disclaimers are not subject to the ordinary time limits of the no-fault regulations. More recently, in Unitrin Advantage Ins. Co. v. 21st Century Pharmacy, Inc., 2018 N.Y. Slip Op. 03438 (1st Dep’t 2018) he obtained an appellate affirmance of a trial court decision that permits insurers to disclaim coverage where a claimant fails to subscribe his or her examination under oath transcript
