Dealing with insurance bad faith after an accident, P.2

Last time, we looked briefly at the case of hedge fund manager and drug CEO Martin Shkreli, who has been charged with securities and wire fraud. As we mentioned, Shkreli has become something of an object of hate because of his decision to engage in price-gouging with long established prescription medications and his defiant attitude even before Congress.   

Dealing with insurance bad faith after an accident

While auto insurance is an important resource for accident victims in terms of recovery, things don’t always go smoothly in filing a claim and receiving benefits under one’s policy. This is why, in addition to exploring potential personal injury issues following an accident, crash victims may also need to explore the possibility of litigation against their insurance carrier.
