Recently, quite a few clients have expressed concerns over Claimant attorneys pursuing Aguilera claims against them.  What is an “Aguilera claim?”  There is a lot of misinformation out there and words like “intentional tort” and bad faith get bandied about.  Usually, it is by Claimant attorneys looking to pressure claims professionals.
Claims professionals are worried that they could be sued for bad faith for simply getting an IME or denying a medical benefit they believe is non-compensable.  My hope here is clear the air and objectively inspect what are the potential liabilities (if any)are  for an adjuster.
