Too many people believe that they are at the mercy of the insurance companies; file a claim, hope for the best, and live with the results. The insurance companies rely on this thinking when they act in bad faith, knowing that if enough customers sit back and take it, they can profit from their illegal practices. But insurance companies are not free to do as they please. They have a legal obligation to honor the promises they make to their customers, to act in “good faith” and when they fail to do so victims like you can hold them accountable.
Bad Faith Insurance Claims
A bad faith insurance claim is not an easy battle, and you should not try to go it alone. Not only are the insurance companies masters at deceiving consumers, they have teams of attorneys dedicated to standing between you and your money. An experienced and dedicated bad faith insurance attorney can help you get fair payment for the original claim value, and often more for the trouble that the insurance company has caused you and its bad behavior.
In addition to the money that the insurance company should have paid in the first place, you may receive:
- Damages above policy limits
- Compensation for your out-of-pocket expenses caused by the insurer’s bad faith actions
- Compensation for your emotional distress caused by the insurance company
- Punitive damages
