Auto Crash Bad Faith
A female college student was a passenger in an automobile crash and passed away.
The defendant caused a backup in traffic and the victim was struck from behind. The insurance policy was only for $25,000 and the insurance company acted in bad faith by refusing to pay the policy limits.
The case was tried and ultimately settled during a bad faith trial for $8,000,000+ (including attorneys fees). There was an additional $3,000,000 settlement before suit.
