SPEAKERS: RICHARD DALY
Rick Daly of Daly & Black, P.C.
“WINNING THE COSMETIC DAMAGE EXCLUSION WAR"
Insurers are more frequently relying on costmentic damage exclusions as a means of denying or underpaying legitimate claims. The exclusions vary from policy to policy, but are frequently misused by insurers that are eager to save a buck. Insurers very often do not properly adjust these claims, fail to adhere to their own policy requirements, and generally fail to even hire the proper experts required to comply with their own legal obligations. Moreover, recent caselaw in some states has made it increasingly difficult for insurers to use this exclusion as a way to short-change policyholders.
Richard Daly has been a trial Attorney for almost 20 years, with a concentration in litigation against insurance companies. Rick is licensed in TX, CO, KY, and NE. Before starting his own firm, he was with Caddell & Chapman, one of the most respected plaintiffs' firms in TX. Prior to that, he was a partner at Gardere Wynne Sewell, LLP, onr of the largest defense firms of Houston.
Rick attended the University of California, Los Angeles, on a football scholarship, playing tight end for the Bruins. After a brief stint with the Denver Broncos, he attended the University of Illinois Law School, where he graduated magna cum laude and Order the Coif (top 10 percent), as well as top 10 in his class.
