Travis Corby Case Spotlighted in San Gabriel Newspaper
The San Gabriel Valley Tribune posted a story on Travis Corby client Comprehensive Medical Center discussing the company’s insurance bad faith lawsuit against State Farm.
In 2016, Comprehensive Medical Center and its founder Dr. Anthony Kingsley lost 90% of the practice when State Farm refused to cover the business interruption losses he sustained as a result of a series of dirty water intrusions that occurred at that company’s El Monte location. Instead of helping get the facility back up and running, State Farm unreasonably delayed and grossly-underpaid its business interruption losses, causing the practice to slow to a snail’s pace.
State Farm’s inaction prevented the medical practice to resume normal operations—impacting the elderly and working-class communities it serves. This story is a great example of how insurance companies, such as State Farm, the largest property-casualty insurer in the US, can interfere with vitally important businesses in needy communities. This practice was seeing 250 patients a week in El Monte prior to the loss but is now barely seeing 30 patients a week because State Farm has refused to pay for its business interruption losses.
