Richard Mason and Julia Molander of the Global Insurance Department will be presenting this one hour Cozen O'Connor bad faith webinar.

Who Should Attend:
Claim professionals who conduct or oversee liability insurance claims, particularly in jurisdictions in which bad faith claims are frequently brought.
 

What You Will Learn:
This webinar will address how courts have stated insurers should address settlement in situations when there has been no demand within the policy limits. Attendees will learn:

  • Which states have required insurers to affirmatively pursue settlement even absent a policy limits demand;
  • How to evaluate whether there has been a policy limits demand when the limits are in dispute;
  • How to satisfy good faith standards for pursuing a “within limits” settlement
  • How to manage the claim when coverage is contested
