Insurance — Bad faith — Cure period — Error to enter summary judgment in favor of insurer on bad faith claim based on conclusion that insurer had timely paid claim because claim was paid within sixty days of when insurer actually received insured’s civil remedy notice pursuant to section 624.155 — The sixty-day cure period under section 624.155 begins to run when the CRN is electronically filed with the Department of Financial Services, and to avoid a bad faith action the insurer must pay the claim or take corrective action within sixty days from the date of electronic filing — Nothing in the plain language of the statute requires an insurer to actually receive the CRN before cure period begins — Because insurer did not mail settlement payment to insured’s counsel within sixty days of electronic filing date, insured was entitled to pursue bad faith action against insurer
