Insurance Company Failure to Pay
Bad Faith Insurers
When an insurance company denies coverage for an injury, many Americans feel that this is the end of the story and that they must pay the expenses out of their own pockets. After all, insurance companies are giant corporations with teams of lawyers working for them – what chance do I have arguing against them? It is important to realize that the less claims the insurance company pays out, the more profits they realize. They have an incentive to deny coverage, and studies show that about 10% of insurance claims are unreasonably denied. If your policy claim has been turned down, you have options. The lawyers of Parkman White, LLP have years of experience doing battle with insurers, and can help make sure you are treated fairly and receive the compensation you deserve.
If an insurance company denies your legitimate policy claim in bad faith, it is important for the purposes of potential litigation that you take certain steps to protect your interests. First, make sure you get written confirmation of why your claim was denied. The insurance company is required by law to provide reasons for denying coverage, and this will become an important document in the event of future litigation. Next, make sure you have all the pertinent documentation relating to your policy and the accident giving rise to the claim, so that your attorney may review them and prepare your case properly. Finally, you must retain an attorney who has experience with failure to pay suits against insurers. Doing battle with these huge companies can be a daunting task, so make sure you hire the right person for the job.
