Fighting Insurance Companies That Don’t Uphold Their Obligations
When an insurance company deals unfairly with an insured, breaches its contract with an insured, or just plain treats him or her unfairly or wrongfully, it is called “bad faith” in legal terms.
Insurance bad faith means what it sounds like: insurance companies not being faithful to their obligations — specifically their obligation to compensate you, in a timely manner, for a covered loss because you have paid your premiums for that reason.
Don’t Be Deceived
It is easy to be deceived by the funny, entertaining TV and radio commercials put out by insurance companies. We are led to believe that the insurance companies and their friendly agents are in our corner, there for us and our families when we need them. Insurance carriers spend billions of dollars each year to persuade people that they are sympathetic, helpful and human.
They are none of the above. Insurance companies are corporations, pieces of paper, whose purpose is to become more valuable. To them, you are not a person — you are just a claim number, a statistic.
Insurance companies make money for their stockholders by delaying claims and misrepresenting their role. Insurance companies care nothing for you and your family because they do not have feelings. That’s why you need an experienced lawyer if your insurance claim is being handled in bad faith.
