Insurance Coverage - Bad Faith
Class ActionInsurance coverage and bad faith liability issues can arise suddenly and unsuspectingly. A situation may appear benign when actually, immediate action may be required to avoid estoppel of policy defenses or breach of duties to defend, duties to settle, duties to settle some claims to the exclusion of others, and duties to inform the insured. We are knowledgeable of the severe nuances of Illinois law in this realm, the options available, and will recommend one or more courses of action.

In direct actions involving the policy by or against the company, insureds often allege vexatious and unreasonable delay in payment of covered losses or settlement of an insured’s claim. We are experienced in presenting sound defenses to such claims such as establishing the existence of bona fide factual and/or legal disputes determinative of coverage under the policy.

Our cases include:
•  Defense of direct actions by insured for alleged breach of insurance policy.
•  Prosecution of declaratory judgment actions to foreclose policy claims and if appropriate, alleged duties to defend.
•  Defense of collateral claims involving the policy for alleged vexatious and unreasonable delay in settling or paying policy claims.
•  Interpleader.
