Winter 2019

In this edition of The Robins Kaplan Insurance Insight, we focus on staying ahead of the curve in managing carrier bad faith liability by providing useful evaluations on recent cases and important statutory changes involving insurer claim handling from states across the country, including Massachusetts, New York, California, and Georgia. In addition, we continue to monitor issues relating to artificial intelligence by commenting on the tensions created by attempting to regulate data protection in an effort to educate the industry on the risks associated with AI, and guard against bad faith liability. Staying abreast of these developments is the first line of defense against future liability for bad faith and unfair claims handling moving into 2020.

We thank you for your readership and hope you find this year-end edition interesting and informative.
