GRG Obtains $260,000 Settlement on Behalf of Southern Missouri County

Tom NeillGray, Ritter & Graham attorney Thomas K. Neill recently resolved an insurance dispute in which he represented a county in southern Missouri. Before hiring Mr. Neill, the county was sued in two separate cases, but the county’s liability insurance carrier refused to defend or indemnify in both suits. After defending those cases out of its own pocket, as well as settling one of the cases, the county hired Mr. Neill, who filed suit against the insurance carrier for breach of contract and bad faith. Although the issue of coverage was fiercely contested, a favorable settlement in the amount of $260,000 was reached while summary judgment was pending.
