Prince, Glover, and Hayes Reaches Settlement in Bad Faith Case

by: Prince, Glover & Hayes Monday, January 3rd, 2011

Prince, Glover and Hayes partner Matt Glover has successfully concluded a bad faith case against a major insurance provider. In a prior case, a plaintiff was awarded compensatory and punitive damages when a commercial truck driver insured by the company caused an accident resulting in serious injuries. The defendant had 26 moving violations, 15 speeding tickets, 1 license suspension, and 2 prior wrecks. As such, a jury found punitive damages against the driver’s employer appropriate. However, the insurance company refused to fulfill the punitive damage award based on a “punitive damage exclusion” in the policy. Mr. Glover efficiently argued for fulfillment of the award with his skilled analysis of the law and all parties were able to settle the dispute in mediation.

Insurance policies can be confusing and difficult to understand. If you are involved in an accident and need help navigating through difficult insurance matters, you may consider hiring an attorney for assistance. Prince, Glover, and Hayes has extensive experience handling tough insurance cases.
