Seyferth Blumenthal & Harris LLC (SBH) associate attorney Nick Daugherty recently authored an article published in Insurance Journal, considered the most read national property and casualty publication for independent insurance agents and brokers.
In the article, Daugherty details the change in a Missouri state statute that has created a new definition of “reasonable value” of medical care in personal injury litigation. This has led to competing interpretations of the law in courts, which affects potential exposure for insurance companies in pre-amendment cases.
The full article, entitled “Personal Injury Insurance Actions in Missouri and a New Definition of ‘Reasonable Value,’” can be read at this link.
Daugherty’s practice at SBH focuses on commercial litigation and counseling in all stages of litigation, with an emphasis on insurance-related issues. He represents insurers in various coverage-related cases.
