Doyle Files Workers’ Compensation Bad Faith Suit Against Travelers
Doyle filed suit against Travelers Insurance Company and its adjuster on January 31, 2011, in a workers’ compensation bad faith action. The suit was filed on behalf of an employee who was injured while working in January 2009. Without any appropriate investigation, Travelers denied that the employee had been injured, delaying his medical and income benefits. Even after agreeing that the employee had been injured at work, Travelers continued to deny the severity of his injury, forcing him to go through an administrative hearing with the Texas Department of Insurance and unreasonably delaying his recovery from the injury and his return to work.
Doyle stands with this injured employee in his continuing struggle against Travelers and its adjuster.
