Larry Strobel v. State Farm Fire & Casualty Company

Held January 17, 2013– Docket No. INS-12-2142
Decision Issued:  January 25, 2013

The named insured requested a hearing to contest the nonrenewal of his automobile policy for three accidents.  The company established that the cited accidents met the requirements for nonrenewal and that statutory notice requirements were met.
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, therefore the nonrenewal action is permitted.
