Biegel Law Firm Made a Difference in this Client’s Life

The Biegel Law Firm represented a young man, Jimmy Anderson, then a second-year law student at the University of Wisconsin, who suffered life changing injuries in an automobile accident in Stanislaus County in which his mother, father and younger brother were killed, leaving him a quadriplegic. After being flown by air ambulance back to Wisconsin and going through substantial physical therapy and rehabilitation, Jimmy was honored and spoke at the graduation of his class. Because of the tragic accident, Jimmy did not graduate with that class, but completed his studies the following year after which he was admitted to practice. Today, Jimmy is a proud member of the Wisconsin legislature, having won election in 2016. Jimmy’s future is bright, despite his profound injuries. Watch the video to see for yourself.

Latest Jury Victory: Insurance Bad Faith

INSURANCE COMPANY FOUND IN BAD VERDICT

$8.7 MILLION JURY VERDICT INCLUDING PUNITIVE DAMAGES

Partnering with Alex Stuart, an insurance law specialist from San Jose, Mr. Biegel and Mr. Stuart jointly represented a Monterey County new car dealer whose entire building, including showroom, parts department and repair facility burned to the ground in 2014.

Our client purchased insurance from a company who claimed it specialized in the needs of new and used car dealers.  After the fire, a claims representative from the insurance company visited the scene and inspected our client’s lease with the owner.  In an e-mail sent on the very first day of the investigation to higher ups in the company, including the CEO, the claims representative claimed that “we might be able to walk away from the building loss.”

The insurance company thereafter informed our client that it was voiding his fire insurance coverage and sent back 14 months of premiums our client had paid.  As a result of their action, our client lost his dealership.

On behalf of our client, we sued the insurance company for breach of contract and bad faith claims handling. The matter was tried before a Monterey County jury in 2019 and lasted one day over a month.  The jury returned a verdict against the insurance company finding that our client had suffered over $1.5 million in economic damages.  The jury also found, by clear and convincing evidence, that the insurance company had acted in bad faith, awarding our client $6.24 million in punitive damages.  Additional damages were added for attorneys’ fees, pre-judgment interest and costs of litigation bringing the final judgment just a bit more than $8.7 million.

The verdict that Larry and Alex obtained was one of the top 50 jury verdicts in all of California for 2019.
