This insurance bad faith CLE webinar for lawyers features David Berardinelli, author of From Good Hands to Boxing Gloves, and Amy Bach, Director of United Policyholders.
After years of persistence by trial lawyer David Berardinelli, Allstate was finally forced to release the infamous McKinsey Documents unprotected. These documents show how Allstate adopted a business model to deny, delay and defend legitimate claims. It also shows how claims were broken down into segments and handled according to whether they involved minor impact, should be investigated for fraud, or should be run through Colossus.
In this Trial Guides CLE webinar, David Berardinelli and Amy Bach of United Policyholders cover the McKinsey slides in depth, and discuss how the information they contain can be used to your clients benefit. This exclusive webinar is available to plaintiff attorneys only.
Here is what others have said about Berardinellis information:
In great detail, the slides show how [Allstate] shareholders could profit from the new way of handling claims, according to Berardinellis notes. Based on public financial reports, Berardinelli estimates that Allstate has made at least $15 billion from CCPR by fighting minor claims, which make up the bulk of payouts. -Lexington Herald-Leader, "Allstate accused of cheating claimants," July 9, 2006
Through many years of intense litigation against Allstate, Mr. Berardinelli has captured the essence of Allstates, and for that matter, the entire insurance claims industrys, business practices. He describes and documents the Zero Sum Game. For anyone engaged in bad faith litigation against either Allstate or any insurer, this book provides essential material and concepts which must be understood in order to adequately represent consumers victimized in the insurance claims process. -Lawrence A. Anderson, President, Montana Trial Lawyers Association
