Personal injury cases are legal disputes that arise when one person suffers harm and someone else might be legally responsible for that harm. Personal injury cases can become formal civil court proceedings that seek to find others legally at fault through a court judgment. Such disputes may also be resolved through informal settlement.
Wrongful Claims Handling & Bad Faith
Insurance bad faith is a legal term of art which describes a tort claim that an insured person may have against their own insurance company for its bad acts. Insurance companies owe a duty of good faith and fair dealing to the persons they insure. This duty is often referred to as the "implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing" which automatically exists by operation of law in every insurance contract. If an insurance company violates that covenant, the insured person (or "policyholder") may sue the company on a tort claim in addition to a standard breach of contract claim.
Workers' compensation is a form of insurance providing wage replacement, medical benefits, and permanent partial disability benefits to employees injured in the course of employment. Nevada laws require prompt reporting and aggressive prosecution of workers' compensation cases.
