RE: Missouri SB 617, HB 1344 – Restoring Balance to Claims Litigation

SB 617 and HB 1344 restore balance to the resolution of insurance claims in Missouri by ending the incentive for trial lawyers to string out the process in order to manufacture a bad faith claim. It returns the focus of the claim to the substance of the case as opposed to technicalities.

“Importantly, despite misinformation from the bill’s opponents, it is crucial to note what the bill does not do. It does not impose an additional burden on the judicial system. It does not take away any right the insured has under the policy. It does not allow insurers to unfairly treat insureds.”
