Bad Faith Insurance Claim Lawyer
Insurance Claim Denials - Free Consultation
Bad faith insurance lawyer Marc Whitehead represents policy holders in claims against insurance companies that fail to live up to the terms of their policies and unfairly delay or deny payment of valid claims.
Whether as a business or an individual, we purchase insurance to protect us in the event of an accident, death or other disaster. We pay our premiums assuming that when the time comes, our insurance carrier will pay our insurance benefits based on the policy we have.
An insurance policy is regarded as a contract between you, the insured, and your insurance company. This agreement requires that the insurance company act in "good faith" toward you.
Unfortunately, many insurance companies have what appear to be intentionally confusing policies and they easily find a reason to deny large claims. This can be insurance bad faith and may be grounds for filing a lawsuit against your insurer. A bad faith insurance claim lawyer must prove that the insurance company failed to honor its contract.
Specific examples of insurance bad faith include:
- Denial of insurance benefits due as outlined in the policy
- Unreasonable delay in payment of insurance benefits due
- Failure to promptly or properly investigate a claim
- Non-disclosure of policy benefits
- Making misrepresentations to you about your policy
Bad Faith Insurance Litigation
Many types of insurance result in litigation on the grounds of bad faith, including disability insurance and bad faith denial of life insurance benefits. When your insurance company attempts to escape its obligation to investigate the claim or to pay you, that is when the services of a qualified bad faith insurance lawyer will protect and maximize your legal interests.
When a satisfactory settlement with an insurance company cannot be achieved, bad faith insurance claim litigation becomes necessary to obtain punitive damages for the violated policy holder. As a skilled insurance bad faith attorney, Marc Whitehead is a strong legal advocate in the courtroom, representing victims of the major insurance companies who are notorious for denying benefits.
