Getting "Hammered" In Court

Attached is an interesting court case received by Cozen O’Connor.  The case provides guidance on when an insurer should, in good faith, accept a plaintiff’s settlement offer. The case itself is a bit unusual, but the circumstances could apply to any of our cases. There is no need to accept an unreasonable and/or unsubstantiated offer to settle, but it is always prudent to get advice from your defense counsel before making your final decision.
