Insurance Bill Leads to War of Words

The West Virginia Record
Dinsmore’s Jill Bentz recently spoke with a reporter detailing an insurance-related lawsuit bill that could stand to be detrimental to West Virginia’s insurance industry. The bill would let those who have filed an insurance claim get information about insurance coverage before they file a lawsuit. Currently, the information is made available by insurers after a lawsuit is filed. Jill explains how the bill creates an incentive for lawsuits, how it opens the door for the return of third-party bad faith lawsuits, and more.
