Doyle Files Workers’ Compensation Bad Faith Suit Against Fidelity & Guaranty, Sedgwick
On June 16, 2011, Doyle filed a workers’ compensation bad faith lawsuit against Fidelity & Guaranty Insurance Company, third-party adjuster Gallagher Bassett Services, and their adjuster, on behalf of an employee injured on-the-job in March 2010. Fidelity and Gallagher Bassett denied the claim, even though the employee’s accident was witnessed by several co-workers, including the employee’s supervisor, who took the employee to the hospital after his accident.
Despite all of the information available, Fidelity and Gallagher Bassett denied the injured employee any rightful benefits until being forced to pay by the Texas Department of Insurance, Division of Workers’ Compensation.
Doyle will assist the injured employee in holding Fidelity, Gallagher Bassett, and their adjuster responsible for their groundless denials of medical and income benefits.
