Insurance Coverage & Bad Faith
Boyd & Jenerette, P.A. has an experienced practice group which assists insurers with coverage and bad faith issues, including pre-suit and litigated matters. The team counsels insurers on good faith handling of cases where there are coverage issues, time demands, multiple claimants, civil remedy notices, demands with conditions, and demands for extra-contractual damages. The Coverage & Bad Faith Practice Group attorneys provide seminars approved for adjuster CE credit by the Florida Department of Financial Services. We consistently produce timely opinion letters that thoroughly analyze questions of coverage and present informed recommendations to our clients. This enables our clients to make reasoned and fair decisions concerning their policyholders. The Coverage & Bad Faith attorneys are experienced with interpretation and litigation of all types of property and casualty, professional malpractice, trucking and transportation, employer liability, comprehensive general liability, homeowners, officers and directors, liability, workers’ compensation and life, health, and accident policies.
In addition to providing coverage opinions to our clients, we also consult with our clients regarding the language contained within their policies and apprise our clients of developments in statutory and case law to keep them up to date on insurance regulation changes. The Coverage & Bad Faith attorneys have handled many declaratory judgment actions and have successfully defended clients against bad faith claims. As part of our ongoing relationship with our clients, we provide advice as changes to policy language are necessitated by changes in Florida law. We are also often contacted by clients seeking advice concerning handling decisions as it applies to coverage issues so as to avoid potential bad faith claims.
