Troy Beecher, an experienced insurance coverage attorney in Goldberg Segalla’s Orlando office, scrutinizes a recent decision from a Florida District Court of Appeal, Landers v. State Farm Florida Insurance Company, which liberalizes and encourages insurance bad faith litigation in Florida. Troy delves into the decision and why it undermines the purpose behind civil remedy notices. Troy otherwise discusses how the court neutered safeguards to a flood of bad faith action litigation stemming from property coverage disputes. Troy also shares his predictions on how the Florida Supreme Court will evaluate the case on appeal and adjudge the several competing concerns in bad faith litigation.
