Bob Meyers Authors White Paper on Washington Bad Faith Law
Sedgwick Seattle partner Bob Meyers has authored a white paper, Washington Bad Faith Law At A Glance, which discusses bad faith law in Washington state. Noting that Washington state can be a difficult jurisdiction for insurers, and their duties of care are sometimes interpreted or applied quite broadly, Meyers cites notable Washington authorities relating to common law bad faith, the Consumer Protection Act, and the Insurance Fair Conduct Act. For ease of reference, he also includes excerpts from notable Washington insurance statutes and regulations.
Meyers has extensive experience representing U.S. and international insurers in complex, high-value insurance matters, including advising clients about their rights and obligations under insurance policies, bad faith law, and insurance statutes and regulations, and representing insurers in disputes and lawsuits.
