[ Insurance Law & Bad Faith ]

Insurance law and bad faith claims.

It can be one of the most helpless feelings of your life. You’ve experienced personal injury and you have to make an insurance claim. The thought of challenging an insurance company for what is rightfully yours can be more painful than the injury itself.

Under most insurance policies, insurance companies are required to defend you from claims and provide coverage for you if you are liable for damages. If you have a denied insurance claim or the insurer fails to defend you, you do not understand your claim, or have suffered a loss, you need to know what options are available to you. You can trust our experienced attorneys to answer your questions, represent your interests and advocate on your behalf with the insurance companies.

Insurance is purchased as a protection against loss, injury or disastrous events. However, most people do not deal with insurance companies on a regular basis.

Typically, people assume that when they purchase a policy they will be taken care of and compensated if they suffer the loss for which they have bought insurance. This is not always the case. In fact, insurance companies often look for ways to deny or minimize claims.

However, insurers owe their insureds an implied duty of good faith and fair dealing. If your insurance carrier unreasonably refuses to pay benefits under the terms of a policy, you may have a claim against your insurance company for damages.

Remember, insurance companies do not make money by paying out claims. They make their money collecting premiums from the policy holders and investing them.
