[Physician] v. Kinsale Insurance, Edward A. Hadley and Renee Levay Stewart

In August 2017, a panel of three AAA arbitrators found that Kinsale Insurance breached a medical malpractice insurance policy by refusing to provide a defense to claims alleging that the physician’s nurse practitioner employees negligently treated a patient’s mental health conditions causing him to assault another person. The physician was entitled to recover his attorneys’ fees incurred in successfully defending the claims. The physician’s bad faith claims against Kinsale were compromised and settled before presentation to the panel of arbitrators in phase two of the arbitration.
