Relationship between the Insurer and the Defense Attorney
Whenever an insured is sued and requires a defense or the insurer is sued, the insurance adjuster and the defense attorney must understand their respective roles in preparing the case for trial. They must develop a rapport with each other and with the insured person or entity that is being defended, to make communication easier to maintain. Bad faith lawsuits and poorly tried bodily injury cases seem to arise when the adjuster and the defense attorney fail to communicate regularly with each other.
