The Philadelphia Inquirer today picked up on Matt Casey's $22 million settlement in a landmark insurance bad-faith case.
The settlement reached this week by Casey becomes the largest in a bad-faith case in Pennsylvania history, Chris Mondics, The Inquirer's legal correspondent, reported.
The case involved the nation's leading insurance company's refusal to pay a $250,000 policy for Casey's client, Patrick Hennessy, who was involved in a 2009 Philadelphia car accident that led to the loss of his leg.
In the settlement reached by Casey, the insurer agreed to pay 88 times its original policy limit, the state's largest newspaper reported.
"A young man with catastrophic injuries took on the largest insurer in America and won," Casey, a founding partner at Ross Feller Casey, told Mondics.
