4 Ways Our Insurance Bad Faith Lawyers Can Help You
Everyone has probably had to deal with insurance companies, whether it was for life insurance, car insurance, or home insurance. Maybe something happened that didn’t sit quite right with you, or something the insurance adjuster said or did seemed off. This is where our insurance bad faith lawyers come in. These attorneys can explain if you have a lawsuit on your hands or guide you on what to do next. Here are 4 ways our insurance bad faith lawyers can help you:
1. Explain Bad Faith Insurance
You may not even know exactly what bad faith insurance is, but our lawyers can help you by telling you about it. They can let you know if the behavior of your insurance company is complying with their duty of good faith, which basically means if they are being honest and upholding their end of the contract between the two of you. Unfortunately, insurance companies can act in bad faith, which means they are being dishonest or not fulfilling their part of your contract. You can set up a meeting with one of our attorneys so you can ask them questions about your suspicion of the insurance company and let them guide you for next steps.
2. Tell You if You Have a Legitimate Claim
When you meet with one of our insurance bad faith lawyers, they will be able to tell you if you have a lawsuit on your hands. Many people aren’t exactly sure what is considered bad faith when it comes to an insurance company. One of the most common bad faith practices is refusing to pay a legitimate claim. Taking an unreasonable amount of time to pay your claim is another sign, as well as misrepresenting language in a policyholder’s contract to avoid paying a claim. Our attorneys will listen to your story and ask you questions to decide if you have a reasonable lawsuit for bad faith insurance.
3. Negotiate With Insurance Lawyers
After one of our lawyers determines you have a case, they will discuss possible representation of your claim. You would need to provide any necessary documents needed for your case, including email exchanges, police reports, property assessment reports, or anything else. From here, our lawyers will reach out to the insurance company and negotiate with them to get your claim settled. If a lawyer threatens them with bad faith insurance, the insurance company may be more likely to pay your claim, but if they do not pay, then we will be prepared to take your case to court.
4. Fight For You
If your case does need to go to court, our lawyers will fight for you. They will collect all of the necessary information to make a case against the insurance company. You will recount your story so they will know what happened and when. Then, our lawyers will fight for you to ensure you get the compensation you deserve.
