We've Recovered Tens of Millions For Our Clients

$21 Million Verdict

Berks County trial judge awarded our clients $18 million in punitive damages and $3 million in attorney fees pursuant to Pennsylvania’s insurance bad faith statute.

The trial court found that the insurer, with a knowing disregard, placed its insured at risk to suffer injury or death by permitting a motor vehicle to be returned with extensive structural repair failures after that vehicle had been declared a structural total loss, and that the insurer applied a scorched earth litigation strategy to price us out of court, paying its own attorneys over $3 million to defend the bad faith lawsuit over a $25,000 collision claim.

To learn more about the case, including the judgment notwithstanding the verdict and resulting Supreme Court Opinions, review the following:
