Matt Sharp of Law Office of Matthew L. Sharp in Reno joins Mike Campbell and Chris Finney to discuss an outstanding result where Matt Sharp and his co-counsel obtained $200 Million in a health insurance bad faith verdict. The case was against the largest health insurer in the country that denied a client the proton beam radiation therapy he needed to treat his lung cancer. The denial was made automatically—without conducting a proper investigation and examining the risks of alternative treatment.

During the pod, Matt Sharp dives deep into the reasoning of the denial and the occurrences that led up to his client passing away due to horrible complications from the alternative treatment he was forced to undergo and how he and his co-counsel handled the 14-day trial and approached their arguments and courtroom strategies.
