Doyle LLP Trial Lawyers has filed suit against Liberty Insurance Corporation (“Liberty Mutual”) alleging that it breached the duty of good faith and fair dealing by denying its client’s workers’ compensation claim.
Liberty Mutual was responsible for handling the payment of necessary income and medical benefits after a 2012 work injury to its client’s lumbar spine. The suit alleges that Liberty Mutual ignored medical records from multiple treating physicians demonstrating the need for further medical treatment, and instead would only consider the opinions of a physician that Liberty Mutual hired to offer opinions on the need for ongoing treatment.
Doyle LLP’s client was forced to hire a lawyer to represent him before the Industrial Commission of Arizona in order to require Liberty Mutual to pay benefits. Unfortunately, because of the lengthy delay in payment of benefits, Doyle LLP’s client suffered from pain and suffering, financial turmoil, and mental anguish.
Doyle LLP focuses its practice on representing injured workers who are injured due to the wrongful conduct of workers’ compensation insurers, long term and short term disability insurers, and health insurers.
