The statute provides for a penalty of $100/day if an insurer fails to comply with a written request within 30 days, which begins to accrue on the 31st day after receipt of the request.

Sandy Eloranto and Katie Johnson Obtain Defense Verdict in Bad Faith Property Damage Lawsuit

Sandy Eloranto and Katie Johnson achieved a defense verdict in a bad faith property damage case stemming from the large scale May 2017 hail storm in metro Denver. Prior to trial, Sutton Booker prevailed on a summary judgment motion, with the court holding as a matter of law that the homeowners’ policy did not cover the total roof replacement demanded by the policyholders. A jury found that the insurance company had not failed to pay additional amounts owed under the policy and Plaintiffs had not complied with their obligations under the contract and entered a defense verdict.
