Product Liability Claim Filed Correctly?

Not all product liability claims are the same. If the Applicant seeks recovery of a personal or commercial automobile damage subrogation or self-insured automobile damage claim, the Auto forum is the appropriate forum with jurisdiction.

Page 7 of the Reference Guide to AF’s Rules and Agreements provides, “Another important point is that the member filed against (Respondent) is not limited to an automobile liability insurer. A Respondent may be a general liability carrier, homeowner’s liability carrier, etc. Any member who may be liable for the Applicant’s damages may be named as a Respondent.”
