Insurance & Extra-Contractual Insurance Litigation/Bad Faith Litigation
Our attorneys have significant experience in defending insurers in claims involving insurance coverage, which may include claims of bad faith, extra-contractual liability, and/or punitive damages. These types of lawsuits can involve many issues, including claims that an insurer improperly denied a claim, improperly delayed payment on a claim, failed to communicate with an insured, failed to conduct an adequate investigation, offered less than the amount owed, or otherwise acted unreasonably in responding to an insurance claim. Best & Sharp understands the legal and practical issues that arise in bad faith matters and the heightened risks and concerns associated with claims for extra-contractual damages. We work diligently to identify the relevant legal and contractual issues, to appropriately respond to those issues, and to develop a strategic plan for litigation of those claims going forward.
