Judge: Insurer Did Not Act In Bad Faith In Not Paying Full Benefits To Insured

Mealey's (September 9, 2016, 11:50 AM EDT) -- LAS VEGAS — An insurer did not act in bad faith in failing to pay an insured the policy limits under the underinsured motorist (UIM) provision of an automobile insurance policy because the insured had received payments from workers’ compensation for his injuries that were deducted from the insurance payment, a federal judge in Nevada ruled Sept. 7 in granting the insurer’s motion for reconsideration (Jose R. Luna v. State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Co., No. 15-1104, D. Nev.; 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 120598).
