Bad Faith

Lawsuits alleging breach of the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing or insurance bad faith are an ever-present challenge for insurance companies selling policies in California.

Wesierski & Zurek, LLP has a demonstrated expertise defending insurance bad faith actions in litigation, at trial, or on appeal in both state and federal courts.

Its attorneys have extensive experience defending insurers who write homeowners, commercial, automobile, health, disability and casualty policies.

Wesierski & Zurek’s attorneys have developed a sub-specialty handling the rapidly evolving field of mold and toxic claims. The firm also has deep experience representing the independent, catastrophic insurance adjusters who assist insurers when a massive disaster like the 1994 Northridge earthquake, 1993’s spate of wildfires, or 1992’s Hurricane Andrew occurs.

Whether the insurer is faced with a single claim or a class action involving hundreds or thousands of claims, Wesierski & Zurek provides its insurer clients with efficient, expeditious, and cost-effective counseling and representation.

For example, some claims may require immediate resolution to stave off potentially huge punitive damage exposure. Other claims can be resolved through dispositive motions well before trial.

The Firm has also successfully defended claims at trial or on appeal. No matter what size claims or class action the insurer faces, the Firm can effectively marshal the appropriate level of staffing to efficiently and successfully defend the insurer.
