§33-6A-3. Insurer to specify reasons for cancellation; immunity
from liability or suit.
In every instance in which a policy or contract of automobile
liability insurance which has been in effect sixty days or which
has been renewed is canceled by the insurer, the insurer or its
duly authorized agent shall, in the notice of cancellation or at
the written request of the named insured, specify the reason or
reasons relied upon by the insurer for the cancellation. These
reasons shall be stated in a written notice and shall, if not
provided in the notice of cancellation, be made within thirty days
after the request: Provided
, That there shall be no liability on
the part of, and no cause of action shall arise against, any
insurer or its agents or its authorized investigative sources for
any statements made with probable cause by the insurer, agent or
investigative source in a written notice required to be given
pursuant to this section. A notice of cancellation for nonpayment
of premium is not void on the grounds that the notice includes the
amount of premium due or the date by which payment was to be paid.
