Practice Areas Litigation Insurance Coverage & Bad Faith

Reger Rizzo & Darnall’s Insurance Practices Group has extensive experience defending insurance companies, self-insured corporations and third-party administrators against unsubstantiated claims. Our team of dedicated, aggressive, practical attorneys has a keen understanding of the complex rules and regulations governing the insurance industry and possesses a proven track record of obtaining favorable results for our clients throughout the Mid-Atlantic region and nationwide. 

Clients, both large and small, have come to rely on our Insurance Practices Group for comprehensive legal representation and valuable, sound counsel. Our attorneys represent major property and casualty insurers as well as smaller regional and specialty carriers. Our team of attorneys works with clients to establish defense strategies that achieve results and stay within a client’s anticipated financial expectations.

Our nationally recognized Insurance Practice defends insurers and their affiliates in tort and statutory claims alleging breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing, improper claims and underwriting practices, consumer fraud and breach of contract claims.

Our attorneys protect insurers from bad faith claims through sound advice at the claims handling stage, based on our experience and extensive knowledge of state claims handling regulations and related laws. We regularly provide advice to insurers at the claims handling stage to minimize the likelihood that an insured will be able to use bad faith allegations as a litigation tactic to force payment of otherwise unmeritorious claims. We assist in developing strategies for mediation and settlement in underlying cases with an eye toward avoiding bad faith traps. We are frequently called upon to represent insurers in such proceedings.

When coverage litigation arises or becomes necessary, we are experienced trial counsel and well-versed in the most efficient means of addressing bad faith allegations, from summary judgment through trial and appeal.

Our insurance attorneys adeptly handle the most complex insurance defense cases. Our team has significant experience interpreting insurance policies and in rendering opinions on coverage, the duty to defend, the duty to indemnify and other insurance contract-related issues. We frequently work with insurers and their claims professionals in handling sensitive claims where coverage or bad faith issues may be implicated.
