An expose of insurance injustice and a plan for consumers and lawmakers to fight it Over the last two decades, insurance has become less of a safety net and more of a spider's web: sticky and complicated, designed to ensnare as much as to aid. Insurance companies now often try to delay payment of justified claims, deny payment altogether, and defend these actions by forcing claimants to enter litigation. Jay M. Feinman, a legal scholar and insurance expert, explains how these trends developed, how the government ought to fix the system, and what the rest of us can do to protect ourselves. He shows that the denial of valid claims is not occasional or accidental or the fault of a few bad employees. It's the result of an increasing and systematic focus on maximizing profits by major companies such as Allstate and State Farm. Citing dozens of stories of victims who were unfairly denied payment, Feinman explains how people can be more cautious when shopping for policies and what to do when pursuing a disputed claim. He also lays out a plan for the legal reforms needed to prevent future abuses. This exposé will help drive the discussion of this increasingly hot- button issue.

Contrary to the arguments of proponents of "tort reform," injured victims are not unduly burdening the American economy. These are people with real injuries caused by the fault of someone else. None of these people asked for their fate. But each of the people - or their families - must live with their fate. Our nation's founders understood, and perhaps we should be reminded, that we as a society must accept responsibility when we wrong someone. If we are not accountable for our actions, then society is forced to pay for our transgressions and care for those we hurt -- some of their stories are included here in this book, and in the forthcoming online series. The primary arguments of tort "reform" advocates rely on the faulty premise that plaintiffs' lawyers dictate the time of settlement. They do not. Neither injured victims nor their counsel have any incentive to delay or prolong litigation. In fact, just the opposite is true. If any group of lawyers has an incentive by reason of their fee arrangements for delay or for taking frivolous positions in litigation, it is counsel who bill by the hour? "The Real Faces of Lawsuit Abuse" examines how the real source of delay in the tort system stems neither from plaintiffs represented under contingent-fee contracts nor from defense counsel paid by the hour. Rather, the delays arise from the economics of the tort system and the insurance industry, which combine to create an impetus for defendants to withhold realistic settlement offers. It is for this reason that so many insurers, corporations and other repeat defendants engage unconscionable "deny, delay, defend" tactics and often put forth frivolous defenses even in clear liability cases. This book provides an in-depth look at that phenomenon, and what is at stake for Americans and our justice system.

The Supreme Court is one of America's leading expositors of and participants in debates about American values. Legal expert Jay M. Feinman introduces and selects some of the most important Supreme Court Decisions of all time, which touch on the very foundations of American society.

Among the cases included will be Marbury v. Madison, on the supremacy of the Constitution and the power of judicial review; U.S. v. Nixon, on separation of powers; and Hamdi v.
