He has extensive experience in personal injury defense, insurance coverage, environmental and toxic torts, construction litigation and professional malpractice. Mr. Barr has published numerous articles and has spoken at events nationwide.
Mr. Barr explains if insurers are strictly liable for excess verdicts in the state of New Jersey and defines the standards for insurer bad faith in the state. He talks about the implications of demands made in the Rova Farms case for a specific settlement deadline.
