Anyone who has been through a motor vehicle accident knows that it can be a traumatic experience. Whether the accident involved an car, motorcycle, or commercial vehicle, you have the right to take legal action against any person, company, or entity that is responsible.

As consumers, we trust that the products we purchase meet certain standards for safety. We also have to trust that the products used or prescribed by our physicians or made available to purchase are safe and free defects or flaws that could inflict injury, illness, or death.
If you have sustained injuries because of a product defect or recalled drug, you may have a product liability claim.

Insurance Bad Faith Claims


 
Why You Should Hire a Personal Injury Specialist

Each year, thousands of insurance claimants and policyholders experience some degree of bad faith representation by their insurance company.

Any of the following issues may constitute bad faith on your insurance company's part:

  • Unreasonable delay or denial of claim
  • Failure to immediately conduct an adequate investigation
  • Failure to act reasonably in evaluating your claim
  • Failure to promptly pay your legitimate claim

Bad faith insurance involves any matter where an insurance company has breached its implied obligation of good faith and fair dealing. This occurs most often when a consumers claim is unreasonably delayed, underpaid, inadequately investigated, or entirely denied. Bad faith insurance companies use fraudulent and deceptive tactics to intentionally deny or withhold proper payment of policyholders' claims.

Previously, a long and difficult arbitration was required to fight a bad faith claim: but today a lawyer can help you evaluate the claims that have been denied or delayed.

From healthcare to automobile insurance and disability claims, consumers should be fairly represented by the insurance company to whom they pay a premium, and often, a deductible. It is important for a bad faith claimant to recognize, however, the economic and time costs associated with proceeding with a bad faith claim can be large.
As such, bad faith lawyers often require a case show reasonably large damage amounts in order to pursue a bad faith claim.

If you have experienced one of the above issues with your insurance company it may constitute bad faith on your insurance company's part, and may entitle you to substantial compensation and punitive damages: amounts of money intended to punish the insurance company when the firm has acted in an overtly unfair way.
