Insurance Coverage and Bad Faith Litigation

The insurer-insured relationship is founded upon trust by the insured that the insurer will abide by the terms of the insurance policy.  As a result of that trust, the law imposes upon every insurance policy an implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing.  When that implied covenant is breached, policyholders are left with a failed bargain for which they have paid and insurers have exposure for bad faith.  Whether a claim involves repairing damages to a home, paying for losses for business interruption, or defending against lawsuits, insurance companies must keep their promises.

The firm is involved in evaluating insurance coverage for claims for indemnification and defenses owed under a variety of insurance policies, including commercial general liability, premises liability, builders’ risk, automobile liability, uninsured/underinsured motorists, errors and omissions, and directors’ and officers’ liability.
