    Event Synopsis:

    The deposition of a claim handler is very significant to an insurance coverage dispute, especially in the field where there are bad faith allegations.

    An insurance policy is expected to protect the insured financially, especially when unexpected events occur. However, in many cases, the insurer denies the claim, agrees to pay only a portion of the claim, or delays payment for months or even years. The insurer that is proven to have acted in this bad faith will be liable for damages in excess of the policy limits. Exemplary damages in bad faith cases are often determined not just by addressing the insured's actual loss but also the wealth of the insurer.

    In this LIVE Webcast, seasoned insurance trial lawyers Michelle Burton (Shoecraft Burton, LLP) and Mindy G. Barfield (Dinsmore & Shohl LLP) will provide the audience with an in-depth analysis of the fundamentals as well as recent developments in Bad Faith Litigation and Insurance Coverage.
