Our client was seriously injured by an uninsured motorist. Our client purchased automobile insurance with uninsured motorists coverage. Even though the insurance company knew that our client was entitled to more than the maximum amount of the policy, the insurance company still refused to pay, claiming that our client should first make a claim under another insurance policy. The insurance company still refused to pay even after the court determined that no other policy applied. We argued that the insurance company was engaging in legal “bad faith” for failing to pay our client in a timely manner. As a result of the bad faith claim, the insurance company ultimately agreed to pay double the maximum amount of the policy.
