Multi-Million Dollar Settlements of Bad Faith Claims

2005, 2007 — Representing an injured worker who was assigned bad faith claims against multiple insurers, a team of lawyers including Tim Allen obtained on the eve of trial in 2005 a $12.95 million settlement for bad faith failure to defend against an insurer with policy limits of $1 million. Turning their attention to the excess insurer, the team of attorneys reached a settlement of $4.4 million in the midst of trial in 2007 where the excess policy limits were $5 million.
