Attorney Kallen has a winning track record. The following is a representative sample of cases she resolved recently:
- A client’s car had been stolen. The insurer investigated the claim for fraud. The client came to Attorney Kallen almost four years after the theft because the insurer had made no decision about whether or not to pay the claim. Attorney Kallen was able to discover that the insurer had determined nearly three years earlier that no fraud had occurred, but had still failed to pay the claim. She sued for breach of contract and bad faith settlement practices. Immediately after filing suit she served a motion for partial summary judgment on the bad faith claim, arguing that the court should determine without trial that the insurer was liable for bad faith settlement practices. The insurer settled shortly after for almost three times the value of the car.
- A client was injured when a car hit him while he was riding his bicycle. Although the client missed several months of work due to his serious injuries, his employer continued to pay him his full salary. The insurer for the at-fault driver insisted that a settlement must take into account that the client did not lose wages. Attorney Kallen sent a demand letter under the Massachusetts Consumer Protection Act showing that the insurer was acting in bad faith in using lost wages rather than loss of earning capacity as the measure of damages. The insurer immediately settled for the full policy limit, which was three times its previous offer.
Attorney Kallen is committed to giving each of her clients their best chance of victory. She will fight hard for you every step of the way.
