The anguish caused by a catastrophic injury or wrongful death is only compounded further when an insurance company wrongfully refuses to pay. Insurers and their policyholders operate under an implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing. When that covenant is breached, a bad faith action can be brought.
Bad faith actions can involve first-party and third-party actions over coverage denials or delays and may involve a punitive damage component, depending on the provisions of the relevant state laws.
Robb & Robb LLC has extensive experience with litigation of successful bad faith claims, most recently recovering a $9.25 million bad faith insurance settlement arising out of an automobile accident in which the insurance policy limits were only $300,000, a Missouri state and national record settlement for a bad faith claim of this type.
