Bad faith case against insurance company settled for $200,000

After our clients’ home was damaged by a tornado, their insurance company denied their claim. While the insurance company claimed that the home sustained cosmetic damages only, an engineer hired by our clients found that the house had sustained serious structural damage in the storm. The estimate to repair the structural damage exceeded what the insurance company would agree to pay by more than ten times. After five days of trial, a settlement of $200,000 was reached just before closing arguments.
