My client was severely injured in a motorcycle accident. In a bad faith lawsuit against the at-fault driver’s insurance company we recovered a confidential amount well in excess of 150 times the policy limits. My client’s health insurer paid around $200,000 for medical care related to the crash.
After resolving the bad faith case, my client’s health insurer asked my client to reimburse it the full $200,000 it spent on medical care. I advised the recovery company for the health insurer that under Florida law, the health insurer was only entitled to a small fraction of what it was seeking. They refused to budge and demanded payment of the full amount.
