presumption of agency


An agency relationship that is legally enforceable, although no agreement has been signed. This presumption of a relationship exists when the insurer acts in a way that gives the idea that someone is his or her agent before the agent has truly been accepted by them, for example, by providing that person with materials bearing the company logo for distribution. The insurer may later be legally liable for that person's acts.
