Sean Carnathan has recently published the first book ever published that gives you a complete guide to bad faith insurance cases under Chapter 176D.

You’ll get a history of bad faith law in Massachusetts, a comprehensive analysis of the statute (as well as related bases for suits), and a helpful discussion of first-party vs. third-party claims.

But that’s just the beginning. Author Sean Carnathan, a seasoned litigator, walks you through all the practical issues – the demand letter, the statute of limitations, pleadings, discovery, typical evidentiary problems, common and less-common insurer defenses, how to use experts, interest and attorney fee awards, appeals and more.
