INSURANCE BAD FAITH DEFENSE
Schnitzer Johnson & Watson insurance team defends insurers and their affiliates against allegations of statutory and tortious breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing, improper claims and underwriting practices, and extra contractual claims.
Our attorneys protect insurers from bad faith claims at the claims handling stage with sound advice based on our extensive experience and knowledge of state claims handling requirements. We routinely assist in formulating strategies to resolve claims via mediations and settlement conferences with a goal of avoiding bad faith allegations and we are frequently called upon to represent insurers in such proceedings. Still, when coverage litigation occurs, our experienced trial attorneys are well-versed in the most efficient means of addressing bad faith allegations, from summary judgment through trial and appeal.
