Recent Experience Highlights

Client Story:  Keogh Cox Develops Comprehensive Plan of Action to Address First Party Bad Faith Insurance Case and Obtains Favorable Settlement.

Where we started:  Keogh Cox has handled numerous claims between a homeowner and their property insurer with regard handling of property damage loss due to a hurricane or other event.  In one such case, a commercial property owner filed several bad faith suits against the insurers for his various properties for damage sustained during Hurricane Isaac.  Keogh Cox defended two of these suits. Our roadmap:  As a matter of court in hurricane cases, claimants assert that the insurer did not properly estimate the loss and/or did not pay a sufficient sum for their damage.  Understanding these issues, Keogh Cox developed a targeted discovery plan and retained experts to address the differences between the estimated damages prepared by an independent adjuster and the estimated damages alleged by the property owner. Resolution:  Keogh Cox used its targeted discovery to highlight the weaknesses in the property owner’s case and obtain a favorable settlement without extended litigation cost.
