Bad Faith and Claims Handling Assistance

We have extensive experience in representing domestic, foreign and international insurers and reinsurers in defense of first-party and third-party extra contractual liability/insurance bad faith actions arising out of a wide array of policies. Our services include assisting insurers at various stages of a claim, from inception all the way to a bad faith trial. We routinely provide our client with claims handling assistance pre-suit through trial, and advise insurers on good faith claims handling, including assisting with complex demands, multi-term demands, bad faith avoidance, complex release assistance, and other claims handling assistance including complex claim evaluations, CRN responses, coverage issues, lien issues, representation of adjusters in underlying depositions, and choice of law issues. Our experience in litigating bad faith and coverage issues enables us to provide a thorough analysis of all potential issues that may arise, allowing for our clients to make an informed decision regarding the handling of claims. This unique perspective routinely aids our clients in avoiding bad faith litigation, and mitigates our client’s potential exposure.

Should a case proceed to bad faith litigation, we routinely defend common law and statutory bad faith actions brought pursuant to Fla. Stat. 624.155, in both federal and state courts throughout Florida. The defense of these claims involves an analysis of the claims handling, an aggressive investigation into the circumstances surrounding the claim, and a broad understanding of the law in a variety of areas. Our vast trial experience in both state and federal courts gives us invaluable insight as to how courts treat the distinctive issues that arise in bad faith litigation, which helps us achieve the best results possible for our clients. Our attention to detail has resulted in numerous favorable results for our clients throughout the state.
