Program Materials

This CLE webinar will discuss bad faith claims that arise in the context of first-party property claims, prevailing case law on bad faith claims in the property insurance context, and issues that pose a risk of bad faith claims against insurers, including disputes over property damage appraisals and delayed settlement.

Description

First-party property damage claims are fraught with pitfalls for insurers. After 2017’s spate of natural disasters due to hurricanes and fires, insurers must exercise diligence in processing property damage claims.

Disputes over property damage appraisals are common, with the policyholder alleging the loss appraisal to be unreasonably low. Policyholders also claim bad faith due to the insurer’s unjustified delay in settling.

Counsel must understand the prevailing case law in the jurisdiction of the claim and proactively minimize risks of bad faith actions in property insurance claims.

Listen as our panel of insurance practitioners analyzes the types of conduct that may cause a bad faith claim to arise from first-party property claims, including disputes over property damage appraisals. The panel will discuss prevailing case law on bad faith claims in the property insurance context and offer best practices for insurers to minimize risks of bad faith claims.
