Moody v. Oregon Community Credit Union and Federal Insurance Company

Year: 2022
Court: Oregon Supreme Court
Case Number: S069409

In its amicus curiae brief, United Policyholders addresses the question of whether a policyholder can recover extra-contractual damages by bringing negligence per se cause of action for mishandling of an insurance claim in a way that violates Oregon statute. United Policyholders’ brief argues that insurance consumer frequently encounter abusive insurer claims handling practices and that a bad faith cause of action, a remedy allowed in most states, would help to hold insurance companies accountable.
