Insurance companies are obligated to handle claims in a fair manner and in good faith. If they violate those obligations and fail to follow the law, you have the right to file a lawsuit against them. Our law firm represents people who have been treated unfairly by insurance companies. Our attorneys have vast experience handling insurance bad faith cases. We possess an in-depth understanding of the laws and are able to use our litigation skills to successfully fight for the rights of our clients.
Insurance Bad Faith Acts
An insurance company can commit acts of bad faith in a number of ways. Sometimes policyholders or claimants may suspect that the claim is not being handled properly but they are unable to gather sufficient evidence to prove this. By hiring an experienced attorney you will have a legal advocate on your side that can perform a proper investigation and makes sure you are properly protected. We will find out if the insurance company has fulfilled its duties. Examples of insurance bad faith are:
- Refusing to pay a claim when a valid claim is filed and there is coverage under the policy
- Failing to settle a claim after liability issues have been determined
- Paying an insufficient amount for a claim
- Not disclosing all of the relevant information regarding a policy or claim investigation
Insurance Bad Faith Litigation
We represent people who have been wronged by insurance companies. Unfortunately, there are insurance companies who use their knowledge to harm people rather than to help them. The insurance companies have knowledgeable personnel working for them including insurance agents, adjusters, and attorneys. Therefore, it is imperative that you have experienced attorneys fighting for your best interests. Some of the issues we have successfully fought for on behalf of our clients include:
- Getting a previously denied claim paid
- Payment for additional losses incurred such as out of pocket expenses
- Punitive damages
