Latest news: Read about $1Million Insurance Bad Faith Settlement from 2013 flood case:
Insurance bad faith attorney James Avery has been handling insurance bad faith claims in Colorado since graduating from the University of Denver College of Law in 1982, initially working for insurance companies such as Travelers, Wausau, St. Paul, and Allstate. He took the side of policyholders in 1989. Since that time, there have been many out-of-state law firms that have entered the legal community, seeking to capitalize on our prospering economy. Jim Avery has been a pioneer in Colorado insurance law for over 30 years, and the lead attorney in the Colorado Court of Appeals case of Cork v. Sentry, which established policy holder rights in insurance bad faith claims related to the commencement of the statute of limitations. As a result of the Cork case, it is established law in Colorado that time limits on insurance bad faith claims don’t begin to run until the act of bad faith that is complained of, and that bad faith can continue to occur as separate acts up until the date of filing and beyond the filing date of the case. This effectively extended policy holder rights until the completion of all business dealings with the insurance company (usually the date of final payment on the claim). This was a major victory for policy holders in Colorado. KNOW YOUR RIGHTS!
