Insurance Bad Faith Defense

In today's litigious society, insurance companies are increasingly challenged regarding the way they investigate and handle claims. Some of these challenges take the form of insurance bad faith litigation, which exposes companies within the insurance industry to compensatory and sometimes even punitive damages. This is a rapidly evolving area of the law where careful and nuanced understanding of the law is important in order to best serve the clients' needs.
