Plaintiff v. Feingold

The Plaintiff was an owner/operator of a truck tractor, used for long distance trailer hauling. The tractor caught fire while stored overnight in a parking area and was destroyed. The Plaintiff made a claim for the loss with his insurer, who investigated and declined coverage on the basis that it believed that the Plaintiff had intentionally set fire to the truck. The accident was fully investigated by the police, who brought no charges against the owner. Keith L. Miller represented the owner in a claim against the insurer for breach of contract and bad faith. The case was tried to a jury in Worcester Superior Court. It resulted in a verdict and significant six figure recovery for the Plaintiff against the insurer.
