Bad Faith Law in Alabama: What Attorneys Must Know
Webinar now available on-demand.
Whether representing the insurance company or the insured, it's essential that Alabama attorneys be familiar with the latest developments in bad faith claims. How does it all play out in the courtroom? What tactics may be employed to prove or defeat a claim? If successful, what damages may the plaintiff recover? How did the Alabama Supreme Court decision in State Farm Fire & Casualty Co. v. Brechbill change how you determine case strategy?
The tort of bad faith in Alabama has four elements – breach of an insurance contract, the intentional refusal to pay the insured’s claim, the absence of any reasonable legitimate or arguable reason for that refusal, and the insurance company’s knowledge of such absence. If the intentional failure to determine the existence of a lawful basis is relied upon, the plaintiff must prove the insurance company’s intentional failure to determine whether there is a legitimate or arguable reason to refuse to pay a claim.
Join your Alabama colleagues for a fast-paced briefing on the latest developments and trial tactics for delivering the best possible outcome.
