In the late 1950’s, the first bad faith case was decided by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. It was not until 1990, however, that an insured could bring an action against his or her own insurance company asserting that the insurance company acted in bad faith in denying an insurance claim. Bad faith law is constantly evolving, and Richard Angino keeps abreast of all of the changes. If you believe your insurance company has denied your claim without a reasonable foundation or in bad faith, you may have the right to seek punitive damages. Punitive damages are designed to punish the insurance company for its bad faith conduct.

Many times the person engaging in sporting activities assumes certain risks inherent with the sporting activity.
