XL Insurance America Settles Sandy Lawsuit with Fisker Automotive

A lawsuit that Fisker Automotive Inc. filed against XL Insurance America over $33 million worth of hybrid-electric cars destroyed by Hurricane Sandy has been settled. The terms of the settlement were not disclosed. Fisker claimed in the suit that XL was wrong to deny its claim for the destroyed cars, which were inundated by Sandy's storm surge while at a trans-shipment facility in Port Newark, N.J. Fisker had a policy with XL "providing coverage for property damage and losses in transit" that was in force when the cars were damaged, records said. Fisker paid a $268,846 premium for the policy, which is subject to an overall limit of $100 million per occurrence. Sandy made landfall on the evening of Oct. 29, just southwest of Atlantic City, N.J. as a post-tropical cyclone. The storm brought with it winds in some places of 80 mph and significant storm surge levels. RMS pegged insured losses from the storm up to $25 billion.

Fisker Automotive Inc. Files Hurricane Sandy Related Suit Against XL Insurance America

Fisker Automotive Inc. has filed a lawsuit against XL Insurance America Inc. claiming the insurer was wrong to deny a claim Fisker made after storm surge from Hurricane Sandy destroyed 338 Karma hybrid-electric cars, which are valued at $33 million. Fisker filed the suit Dec. 28 in Supreme Court of the State of New York in New York County. The automobile company said the cars were waiting at a trans-shipment facility in Port Newark, N.J., when Sandy's storm surge inundated the facility, submerging the cars in at least five feet of seawater. The lawsuit said Fisker on Nov. 13 notified XL of the loss, filed its proof of loss on Dec. 3 and the insurer's adjuster acknowledged on Dec. 18 that all information requests had been met. However, two days later XL said it was denying the claim, the lawsuit said. Fisker had a policy with XL "providing coverage for property damage and losses in transit" that was in force when the cars were damaged. Fisker paid a $268,846 premium for the policy, which is subject to an overall limit of $100 million per occurrence. The auto company claims it sustained a transit loss that should be covered within the policy terms and XL's "contractual duty to indemnify (Fisker) for the value of the loss has been triggered".
