The Nebraska Court of Appeals recently upheld summary judgment obtained by attorneys Sean Minahan and Pat Vipond in the Nebraska District Court of Keith County. Appellees argued that their insurance agent negligently advised them as to workers’ compensation insurance requirements under state law. The Court, however, determined Appellees failed to request workers’ compensation insurance and the agent had no duty to advise Appellees as to Nebraska’s workers’ compensation insurance requirements. The Court noted that “the Nebraska Workers’ Compensation Act governs employers, not insurance agents.” The opinion is scheduled for publication and the full opinion can be found at 25 Neb. App. 742.
