Aggressive Representation Against Insurance Companies For Bad Faith
Insurance bad faith is a claim that an insured person may have against an insurance company for its bad acts. When individuals are injured by the negligence or recklessness of others, an insurance company often becomes involved in the claim or lawsuit. Once an insurance company becomes involved in a claim or lawsuit, they have a responsibility to act with good faith and fair dealing. This means that they must adhere to set policies and procedures for investigating, evaluating, and ultimately resolving or paying claims that have merit. Unfortunately, many times insurance companies act in bad faith and refuse to act with good faith and fair dealing.
Examples Of Bad Faith Practices By Insurance Companies
The most common forms of bad faith are when the insurance company does one of the following:
- Fails to promptly or thoroughly investigate your claim
- Fails or delays in the payment of insurance benefits to which you are clearly entitled
- Fails to respond to phone calls or written letters
- Continues to appoint new adjusters to your file and therefore delay any progress
- Interprets the language of an insurance policy in an unreasonable manner
- Refuses to settle your case or make a settlement offer
- Declines to reimburse you for your entire loss
- Unreasonably denies your benefits
When an insurance company acts in bad faith, it can be frustrating and detrimental to your mental, physical, and economic stability. After sustaining an injury, it can be emotionally draining and difficult to work with insurance adjusters and insurance companies that deliberately avoid your communication efforts. If you have become a victim of insurance bad faith, please contact The Greene Law Firm so that our attorneys can go to work on your behalf.
Insurance Companies Value Profits Over People
When you have been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, the insurance company representing the at-fault person has one goal, save as much money as possible, by paying you the least amount possible. It’s often difficult for an individual who has suffered a loss or injury to get the full insurance benefits that they deserve from an insurance company. Although the insurance company adjusters might be polite to you following a collision, it is important to keep in mind that the insurance company does not have your best interest as its primary focus. If you or a loved one has been subjected to insurance bad faith, you need an aggressive attorney prepared to fight to get you everything you deserve.
Such bad faith practices occur in a broad variety of legal cases, such as:
- Automobile accidents and wrecks
- Truck accidents and wrecks
- Motorcycle accidents and wrecks
- Premises liability (someone is injured or killed on the premises of another)
- Defective drugs
- Medical malpractice
- Train accidents
- Personal injury
- Property damage
- Wrongful death claims
