The concept of ‘bad faith’ continues to be a hot topic in the insurance industry and is one that starts with the carrier’s claims handling, from receipt of the claim and continues well into the litigation through the claims resolution. In recent years, there have been changes across jurisdictions, expanding the scope of potential liability for bad faith damages and navigating the challenges caused by the continued erosion of the attorney-client privilege in bad faith litigation. The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted litigation in the form of delays as well as creating uncertainty when civil trials will commence with regularity. Savvy claimant attorneys are looking to build up the claim value by posturing the claim early on for potential exposures and all starts with the adjuster’s handling of pre-suit demands. This webinar will highlight some of the recent trends and provide practical solutions on how to avoid the common pitfalls from acknowledgement of the claim through resolution.
