Payne & Fears LLP Recovers Substantial Insurance Benefits for Hospital in Business Dispute

Payne & Fears LLP recently wrapped up the final piece of a multi-million dollar insurance recovery for its client, one of Los Angeles’s largest nonprofit hospitals.  The hospital had received no assistance from its liability insurers in defending claims by a disaffected doctors’ group for allegedly breaching the parties’ contract and engaging in a series of business torts.  The firm’s attorneys formulated and executed an insurance strategy that, following three lawsuits, enabled the hospital to recover several multiples of its out-of-pocket defense costs and settlement payment.  The prosecution involved recoveries under a wide assortment of policies, including hospital comprehensive liability, commercial general liability, directors and officers liability, and managed care errors and omissions policies.
