Bad faith litigation claims are on the rise and showing no signs of slowing down. In just the last six months, two courts in Pennsylvania have ruled for policyholders in summary judgment motions on bad faith.
From claim investigation, through discovery and trial, bad faith claims raise uniquely complex issues. This program will analyze the legal and practical issues confronting insurance coverage counsel, insurance defense lawyers and claims professionals arising from allegations of bad faith claims. Panelists will shed light on the most effective ways to utilize the pleading stages to glean an advantage; develop evidence with an eye towards structuring dispositive motions; implement credible case themes and properly manage discovery.
Expert panelists will discuss the following topics, among others:
Monitoring claims processing practices to forestall bad faith lawsuits
Conflict of interest issues confronting insurance defense counsel
Drafting the complaint and initial motion practice
Tips on using experts in bad faith litigation
Trial issues, including bifurcation and bench v. jury trials
