Insurers are often threatened with extra-contractual liability for “bad faith” and bad faith causes of action are a frequent occurrence in insurance coverage litigation over third-party liability claims.  While insureds often have their own opinion of what constitutes insurer “bad faith,” what are the types of bad faith recognized by California courts, when does conduct rise to the level of actionable bad faith, how can insurers minimize the risk of bad faith, and what potential damages do insurers face?  This presentation will provide some guidance on these issues.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Learn what types of bad faith liability California courts recognize and what conduct may rise to the level of actionable bad faith.
  • Learn how to minimize the risk of bad faith liability.
  • Learn possible damages that can arise from bad faith.
