Insurance policies of all types typically require insureds to notify the insurer of any lawsuits first. In cases when an insured fails to provide such notice, there shall be no coverage for the resulting verdict. However, in GEICO Indemnity Co. v. Whiteside, the Court asserted that the failure of the insured to give notice does not excuse the insurer of potential liability for a bad faith. The decision was based on several factors, including the failure to properly name the insured and to provide a copy of the policy.
