Cynthia Curtis v. Teachers Insurance Company

Held November 27, 2012– Docket No. INS-2127
Decision Issued:  December 4, 2012

The named insured requested a hearing to contest the nonrenewal of her automobile policy for three accidents and a speeding conviction.  The company established that two of the accidents established grounds for nonrenewal.

Held: For the insurer. The Maine Automobile Cancellation Control Act permits nonrenewal of a policy when the named insured or customary operator is involved in two or more accidents while driving a motor vehicle insured under the policy, if the accidents occur within the 36 months preceding the annual anniversary date of the policy and each exceeds $1,000 in damages or involves bodily injury. None of the statutory exceptions applied to the stated accidents. The company demonstrated that two of the three accidents qualified for nonrenewal and that statutory notice requirements were met.
