Prince, Glover & Hayes Settles Case for Alabama Poultry Farmers

by: Prince, Glover & Hayes Monday, September 19th, 2011

Partner Matt Glover has reached a confidential settlement in a case involving three Alabama poultry farmers in Pickens County. Their poultry houses were damaged during severe windstorms, but the insurance companies denied all the claims, citing “wear and tear” or “improper construction” as the cause of damage. Interestingly, the companies didn’t note any “wear and tear” or “improper construction” just months earlier when they did an inspection deciding to insure the houses and accept premium payments from our clients.

Mr. Glover filed suit alleging bad faith and breach of contract. The firm worked tirelessly on the case, investigating the poor conduct of the insurance companies and bringing to light their atrocious practices. In some cases, the companies sent our clients letters warning their claim may be denied due to “wear and tear” or “improper construction” before even looking at the houses after the storm! The firm has settled or is currently in the process of handling dozens more poultry house cases. It is not uncommon for insurance companies to wrongly deny claims. We handle all types of bad faith, fraud, and breach of contract insurance claims.
