Bad Faith Insurers
When an insurance company declines to pay for an injury, many feel that this is the end of the story and that they have to pay these expenses out of their own pockets. After all, insurance companies are giant corporations with teams of lawyers on their payrolls – what use is it to argue with them? It is important to realize that the less claims the insurance company pays out, the more profits they bring home. They have a bottom-line motivation to deny coverage, and studies have shown that somewhere around 10% of insurance claims are unreasonably denied. If your policy claim has been turned down and you feel you shouldn’t have to pay, you have options. The lawyers of Parkman White, LLP have years of experience doing going toe to toe with insurers, and we can help make sure you are treated fairly and compensated to the extent of your policy limits.
If an insurance company denies your legitimate policy claim in bad faith, it is critical that you take steps to protect your interests in order to preserve your potential claim. First, make sure you get written confirmation of why your claim was turned down. The insurance company is required by law to provide an explanation for denying coverage, and this can become a very important document as the case progresses. Next, ensure that you have all of the relevant documentation relating to your policy, as well as the accident giving rise to the insurance claim, so that your attorney can review them and prepare for your case effectively. Finally, you need to retain a lawyer who has experience with failure to pay suits against insurers. Going up against these giant companies can be a daunting task, so make sure you get the right attorney for the job.
