Insurers Are Sued For Refusing Coverage For Injured Worker But None Knows How He's Doing

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 9 – The property owner 622 Third Avenue Company, L.L.C sued National Fire Insurance Company of Hartford for not covering it for the injury of Jason Vargas who worked on a construction project at the building.            

    On November 9, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Katherine Polk Failla held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

 Judge Failla asked, quite sensibly, how Vargas is doing physically. None of the lawyers knew. One said, I'm not involved in the underlying state action.

  But the dispute soon became clear: the insurer argue that Vargas slipped on water from the leak in a fire stair coming back from a bathroom break, not in connection - they say - with the contruction project. 

  Judge Failla indicated it is too soon to refer the case to mediation or a magistrate and the parties agreed.

The case is 622 Third Avenue Company, L.L.C v. National Fire Insurance Company of Hartford et al., 21-cv-6050 (Failla)
