The Claims File: Key Discovery for Bad Faith Insurance Litigation


In this article, I point out that insurers have a duty of good faith and must engage in fair dealing in the performance and execution of the insurance contract. This article will provide important information for you, especially if you suspect that:

 Pertinent facts or policy provisions relating to coverage are being misrepresented;

 The insurance company is failing to adopt and implement reasonable standards for prompt investigation of your company’s claim;

 Payment of your claim has been refused without a reasonable investigation being conducted;

 There has been no attempt to provide a prompt, fair and equitable settlement where liability has become clear;

 The insurer is attempting to settle your claim for less than the amount that is reasonable.

Your organization must be alert to its rights under these circumstances. I encourage you to read the Article and call me if you have any questions concerning coverage issues that require legal representation. We have a staff of highly qualified attorneys and para-professionals that have achieved substantial results for clients.
