Lawsuit Reform Alliance of New York Executive Director Tom Stebbins Responds to United Policyholders’ Insurance Lawsuit Report
“We know from failed experiments in other states like California that so-called “bad faith” laws harm consumers by dramatically increasing the cost of insurance and driving carriers from the market. It’s certainly suspicious that United Policyholders, a group funded by the personal injury lawyer lobby, is advocating for higher attorneys’ fees as the solution to a problem they appear to have wholly fabricated.”
