Judging by my contact with defense attorneys who seek expert witnesses, it seems to be a growing trend in the United States where insurers are applying for unfair rights against attorneys left to defend their insured. When an insurer retains a defense attorney to represent their insured only to discover that they are incompetent or committing a crime in the defense, rather than acknowledging the mistake of choosing a bad attorney for the insured, the insurer sues the malpractice attorney seeking compensation for the amount paid. to reimburse the insured.
Where the insurer retained defense and there was no reservation of rights, courts have allowed the primary insurer to bring an action against the lawyer for misconduct and found that the lawyer represents insurers, together with the insured, where they have common interests.
The insurance lawyer must manage his potential exposure to lawsuits brought against them by insurance companies asking them to defend the insured. This should make defense lawyers re-evaluate the limits of their wrongdoing policy and understand all potential parties who can bring a claim against them.
Similarly, insurance companies should recognize their own exposure in respect of receivables insurance claims. They must also choose defense attorneys with the utmost care and attention as they may not be able to sue their chosen defense attorney if a mistake occurs. Insurance companies must also ensure that the lawyers representing their interests provide appropriate information to the insured's independent lawyer.
