Insurance Bad Faith Claims: Expanding Scope of Insurers Liability From Policyholder and Insurer Perspectives
Evolving Liability Theories, Institutional Claims, Attorney-Client Privilege and Punitive Damages
Recording of a 90-minute CLE webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will analyze key developments in bad faith litigation and how these issues serve to expand the insurer’s exposure to bad faith claims. The program will look at recent trends in the attorney-client protection between insurer’s counsel and claims representatives, new theories of liability, the increased focus on institutional claims and the expanding scope of punitive damages claims.
- Evolving standards for imposing bad faith liability
- Institutional bad faith claims
- Size and scope of punitive damage awards
- First party UM/UIM claims
- Attorney-client privilege
The panel will review these and other key issues:
- Has there been a trend toward the erosion of the attorney-client privilege in bad faith litigation?
- How many other instances of bad faith does a plaintiff need to prove an institutional claim—five, ten, more?
- What are trends in punitive damages awards in bad faith litigation?
