A high-profile case about a child’s gruesome accident produced considerable media coverage, but the insurer’s awareness of that coverage did not satisfy the insurance policy’s “claim” requirement: “The fact that [the insured] became aware of media reports about Braylon’s injuries and sent those reports to Evanston, which in turn opened an internal ‘Claim/Occurrence’ file and monitored further developments, does not substitute for the Jordans actually making a timely claim against M&O. Their failure to do so is fatal to their assertion of coverage.” Jordan v. Evanston Ins. Co., No. 20-60716 (Jan. 17, 2022).
