Doyle LLP Files Lawsuit On Behalf of Injured Worker Against Zurich American Insurance Corp.

On February 22, 2010, Doyle LLP filed suit in district court in Harris County, Texas against Zurich American Insurance Corp. and its adjuster related to their handling of an injured worker’s claim for worker’s compensation benefits. In this case, the injured worker received multiple reports from neutral state appointed doctors supporting the worker’s claim for benefits that the carrier and its adjuster refused to accept. The injured worker was forced to hire counsel and receive an order from the Texas Department of Insurance requiring Zurich to pay the long sought after benefits. Unfortunately, the many month delay caused significant financial and emotional damages for which this worker and his family are still fighting to overcome.
