Nine months after being assured it had been added as an additional insured to a vendor's insurance policy, Safety Lights was denied coverage. After an unsuccessful suit on the policy, Safety Lights sued its vendor for breaching the promise to provide additional-insured coverage.*fn1 That suit was filed less than four years after coverage was denied, but more than four years after the promise to provide coverage was breached. The trial court held the claim was barred, but the court of appeals reversed as the discovery rule might make it timely. Because the discovery rule does not apply to this type of claim, we reverse.
