Insurance industry statistics reveal that a significant percentage of drivers carry inadequate coverage or no coverage at all, which means that insured motorists who fail to carry – or who lack an adequate amount of – uninsured (UM) or underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage place themselves at financial risk if they are ever hit by them.

Speaking at the 2016 National Business Institute’s Advanced Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Law CLE seminar, McAfee & Taft trial attorney Jodi Dishman delves into the question of whether bad faith claims are an indelible part of a UM/UIM practice. Her presentation includes an overview of a bad faith insurance claims and litigation, including:

  • To whom the duty to act in good faith is owed
  • What a claimant must prove to establish a violation of the duty of good faith and fair dealing in Oklahoma
  • Recoverable damages available to the claimant
  • How the courts look at the facts underlying a bad faith claim
  • What actions by the insurer do not constitute bad faith
