To be able to competently handle insurance bad faith cases and insurance fraud cases, you need to understand the insurance industry and how to effectively handle bad faith claims. In this program, insurance industry expert and trial lawyer Charles Miller will address the factors you must consider when taking a bad faith case, such as whether or not you should take the case, and your plan to develop and prosecute the case even before you file the action.

This 90-minute seminar will cover the following topics:

  • Intake questions
  • Interview with the plaintiff
  • Legal research
  • Damages potential
  • Whether the case can be solved via a summary judgment motion
  • Due diligence exploring fraud issues
  • Ethical considerations
  • Retainer agreement
  • Letter of representation
  • Evidence of preservation letter
  • Public adjustor or appraisal on first-party property cases
  • Early settlements
  • Preparing your complaint
  • Prelitigation discovery

Charles Miller’s practice has been devoted to insurance law since 1990. Prior to 1990, Miller was employed by the insurance industry for 18 years as both a claims representative and claims manager, which gives him special expertise on insurance industry practices and standards.

Michael Cohen devotes much of his practice to representing people and firms with claims that have been wrongly and unfairly denied by insurance carriers. Using his decades of experience, he has recovered millions of dollars protecting policyholders, both individuals, and businesses, from insurance companies’ refusal to pay claims.

Additional sessions in this series will cover the following topics:
