Law Offices of Timothy D. McGonigle Successfully Reversed Ruling in Favor of Insurer in Bad Faith Case
Principal trial attorney Timothy D. McGonigle represented an elderly couple in a case against their insurance company for claims that included breach of contract and bad faith. The couple’s house suffered substantial water damage, which subsequently caused flooding, damage to property, mold, and other environmental contamination. After the insurer failed to reasonable adjust their claim and made an offer that was much less than the damage, the couple brought suit, with the trial court granting summary judgment in favor of the insurer on all grounds. Mr. McGonigle successfully reversed the trial court’s ruling, specifically rejecting the insurer’s argument that the mold exclusion was a bar to the couple’s claim. The case ultimately settled.
“When Tim and his staff took on my case, they had hurdles created by former counsel to overcome. Even with all that was working against us, Tim and his staff used their considerable gifts and skills to successfully resolve the case.“
