Eric is a Naples Personal Injury Attorney and the founder of Cardinal Law, P.A. Having lived in Southwest Florida since 1991, Eric has deep roots in the community, a love and understanding of the area, and a passion for helping those in need.  Prior to starting his own firm, Eric was a litigator at the world’s largest law firm — Dentons — and spent almost a decade fighting over complex business, construction, commercial, and real estate disputes.

After the traumatic loss of his father to a misdiagnosed colon polyp and belated discovery of Stage IV colorectal cancer, Eric decided to diverge from complex civil litigation and venture into the world of personal injury and medical malpractice where he can actually help people who are seriously injured in accidents or who lose loved ones to medical malpractice, car accidents, truck accidents, wrongful death, or traumatic events.  Eric’s goal as a litigator is to help people recover from terrible situations . . . which can happen at any time, completely out of the blue, and without any prior warnings. Recovery from these life-altering events not only includes receiving the appropriate monetary compensation for bodily injuries, but also includes receiving the right treatment from the best medical professionals in Southwest Florida. Eric and his team maximize recovery for Cardinal Law, P.A. clients with this wholistic approach to personal injury cases.

  • Statute of Limitations on Bad Faith Claims


    What happens if you are involved in a car accident and the at-fault party’s insurance company either refuses to cover your claims or refuses to defend the insured?  You may have a claim for bad faith against the at-fault party’s insurance company if you obtain a judgment against the at-fault party.  How does this work, you might ask, and when do you need to file suit against the at-fault party’s insurance company for bad faith?

    First, you will need to sue the at-fault party.  If the at-fault party’s insurance company refuses to cover or defend the claims, you will need to obtain a judgment against the at-fault party.  This can be done through trial or through a negotiated consent judgment referred to as a Coblenz agreement, in which the parties agree to the amount of damages and the right to collect against the insurance company is assigned to the injured party.  Then, you will need to file suit against the at-fault party’s insurance company for bad faith.  But what if a lot of time has passed between the accident, the denial of coverage, and the judgment?  You may run into a statute of limitations issue, and the insurance company may try to dismiss the claims based on timing.  This happened in a recent case from Florida’s Fourth District Court of Appeal.

    In Butler v. Florida Peninsula Ins., Co., 4D20-0678 (February 17, 2021), the injured party sued the insurance company for bad faith after entering into a consent judgment with the insured and receiving the right to collect a $100,000 judgment against the insurance company.  the insurance company moved for summary judgment, arguing that the case was barred by the statute of limitations because the insured, whose claim the injured party had asserted, was required to file an action against the insurance company within five years of its denial of coverage and request to defend in the underlying personal injury lawsuit.  The trial court granted summary judgment in favor of the insurance company.

    The Fourth DCA reversed an entry of summary judgment in favor of the insurer based on a determination that the plaintiff’s action was barred by the statute of limitations.  The statute of limitations began to run not at the time the insurer refused to cover the defendant insured, but at the time when damages were fixed by the entry of the agreed judgment.

    It is important to hire an experienced Naples Personal Injury Attorney at Cardinal Law, P.A. to deal with these and other complicated issues, and to pay attention to the timing of important litigation deadlines.
