Bad Faith Claims and Wins at KCEH

Bad Faith Claims and Wins at KCEH

Bad Faith Claims and Wins at KCEHBad Faith Claims

We recently filed the first of two cases against Anthem Blue Cross for failure to fully pay a claim for emergency medical evacuation by an insured who needed immediate transport to a medical facility after suffering a serious injury. The case is filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Indiana. In addition to the California Bar, Guy Kornblum is a member of the Indiana Bar and has joined with Dave McNamar of Indianapolis, who is Of Counsel with KCEH. The case is a compelling one indeed and includes a “bad faith” claim.
We also have a second and even more compelling case (with a great story about the insured who was on an “Angel of Mercy” venture when she suffered a stroke while trekking up Mt. Kilimanjaro). More on that one later.

Wins

We settled a very interesting case on behalf of an infant who is the survivor of a father not married who was shot at a South of Market St hotel during an altercation over a drug purchase. The story has been in the papers (SF Weekly mid-Nov). Excellent settlement in a case of this kind. No insurance! Mr. Kornblum and Nicholas Peterson were the lawyers on the case with colleague Christoper Morales, a criminal lawyer in San Francisco who can be reached through his website.
