Interesting discussion on NF-10s

Sheepshead Bay Med. Supply, Inc. v Erie Ins. Co. of N.Y., 2021 NY Slip Op 50491(U)(App. Term 2d Dept. 2021)

“Contrary to plaintiff’s assertion, defendant established that it had mailed the NF-10 denial of claim forms at issue in duplicate. The affirmation of plaintiff’s counsel in opposition to defendant’s motion for summary judgment was insufficient to raise a triable issue of fact, as counsel did not demonstrate that he had personal knowledge of the facts (see Zuckerman v City of New York, 49 NY2d 557 [1980]). To the extent that plaintiff contends that it was prejudiced by defendant’s improper use of “outdated” denial of claim forms, the denial forms at issue are not fatally defective, as they contain substantially the same, pertinent information as the prescribed form (see 11 NYCRR 65-3.8 [c] [1]; NYU-Hospital for Joint Diseases v Allstate Ins. Co., 123 AD3d 781 [2014]; see also 11 NYCRR 65-3.8 [h]). Plaintiff’s remaining contention was improperly raised for the first time on appeal and, in any event, lacks merit.”
