“New Jersey bad faith law presents challenges to attorneys for claimants and insurers alike,” said Mr. McMonigle. “While, unlike some states, New Jersey has no bad faith statute, its courts have over a 40-year period fashioned a common law bad faith remedy in both the first party and third party claim scenario. In our text, Lindsay and I have tried to trace the origins of bad faith in New Jersey, explain its current state under the many appellate and trial court decisions, and offer insight on where the law may be headed. We hope the text will prove valuable to attorneys on both sides of an insurance claims handling dispute, as well as to the state and federal judges called upon to resolve such disputes.”
Mr. McMonigle’s national practice focuses upon the defense and trial of first and third party insurance matters involving coverage issues, alleged bad faith, policyholder fraud, and life, health and disability claims. A veteran litigator, he also provides training to claims professionals and attorneys on the subject of good faith claims handling.
In addition to Insurance Bad Faith in New Jersey, Mr. McMonigle is also the author of Insurance Bad Faith in Pennsylvania, now in its 14th Edition, which examines the important issues relating to bad faith lawsuits under Pennsylvania's common law and under 42 Pa.C.S.A. §8371 - Pennsylvania's "Bad Faith Statute."
Ms. Andreuzzi focuses her litigation practice on advising and defending personal, commercial and surplus line insurers in complex insurance coverage matters and allegations of bad faith claims handling. She has an extensive background in bad faith law in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, and collaborated with Mr. McMonigle on the 11th, 12th, 13th and 14th editions of Insurance Bad Faith in Pennsylvania.
