Bad Faith and Extra-Contractual Claims

One of Zelle’s core insurance practices is defending property and casualty and life and health insurers against claims alleging "bad faith," the violation of unfair claims and business practices statutes, other extra-contractual claims and punitive damages. The firm also represents clients in responding to complaints brought by insureds to state insurance regulators. Zelle attorneys have sat on the national "bad faith" panels of several insurers for years. The firm tracks and analyzes "bad faith" and punitive damages judgments in all of the 50 states and U.S. territories and devotes a substantial amount of time counseling and training our clients’ claims professionals in extra-contractual claim avoidance techniques. Zelle has also amassed a network of experts and consultants in this area to assist in defending its clients against these high exposure claims.
