Boston Insurance Malpractice Testimonial
This was an extremely complex and rather prolonged case. Our clients were entrepreneurs with a great strategy for handling company payrolls. They diligently sought insurance protection to ensure that they, and their clients, would not suffer economic loss in the event of theft. Unfortunately, despite receiving detailed company information, the brokers for the two key insurance policies failed to obtain proper and adequate insurance.

Gov. Charlie Baker was sworn into office in 2015. Baker is a Republican, and has been critical of the ACA. But Baker was among a bipartisan group of governors who called on Congressional Republicans to reject the partisan efforts to repeal the ACA in 2017, and he was critical of the Trump Administration’s decision in 2017 to end federal funding for cost-sharing reductions (CSR), noting that ending the funding could result in a destabilized individual health insurance market (ultimately, insurers simply added the cost of CSR to silver plan premiums, resulting in larger premium subsidies — which are funded by the federal government — and protecting most consumers from bearing the brunt of the price increase).
