Kieran Doherty Shares Insights on Open Policy Cases and Bad Faith in "Justice Team Podcast"

We are thrilled to announce that SHK Law attorney Kieran Doherty recently joined host Bob Simon on the “Justice Team Podcast” to discuss the intricacies of open policy cases and share practical tips for lawyers seeking to maximize their clients’ recoveries.

In the episode, titled “Poppin Policies and Very Bad Faith”, Kieran draws upon his unique experience as a former insurance adjuster and defense attorney to provide valuable insights on navigating open policy cases from both the pre-litigation and litigation perspectives.

Throughout the discussion, Kieran and Bob delve into a wide range of topics, including:

  • Crafting effective policy limit demands that comply with California’s CCP-999 requirements
  • Dealing with multiple claimants and global demands in policy limit cases
  • Leveraging workers’ compensation benefits to support clients during personal injury litigation
  • Strategies for making demands over policy limits during litigation
  • Ensuring that demands and important communications reach the insured party
  • Best practices for handling post-verdict demands and judgments in excess of policy limits

Kieran emphasizes the importance of keeping demands clear, concise, and reasonable, noting that the goal is to make it easy for a jury to understand why the insurance company should have settled within policy limits. He also shares valuable tips for getting demands in front of key decision-makers and applying pressure on carriers to protect their insureds.

In addition to the informative legal discussion, the episode features Kieran’s signature wit and humor, making for an engaging and entertaining listen.
