Insurance Bad Faith\Extra-Contractual Damages

Although most bad faith claims are without merit, the potential exposure to carriers remain significant because punitive damages are almost always alleged. We recognize the dangers in these claims and appreciate the implications of a direct attack on the way our insurance clients conduct their business.

Our attorneys specialize in defending bad faith litigation and requests for extra-contractual damages by drawing on our collective experience of defending bad faith claims. Because of this background, we have a working knowledge of how claims are properly handled. This is essential to an effective evaluation and defense of bad faith lawsuits, and it enables us to provide legal counsel to our insurance carrier clients before problems arise. Our approach in defending bad-faith lawsuits is to promptly recognize and evaluate the pros and cons of each case, provide cost-effective resolution of the claims, which are adverse and strenuously resist those which are unwarranted.
