Do you have a claim dispute with your insurance company?
Oakland Insurance Claims Lawyers
Individuals rely on an insurance company to act in good faith when presented with a claim. It is not uncommon, however, for an insurance carrier to delay, devalue or deny a claim without proper consideration and a valid reason. When this happens, the policyholder might be entitled to file a claim of insurance bad faith. If your insurance company has broken its covenant of good faith and fair dealing, contact an experienced lawyer as soon as possible.
The insurance bad faith attorneys at Donahue & Horrow LLP, have more than five decades of combined experience guiding clients through this challenging financial time. We understand that it can be frustrating when an insurance company does not honor its end of a contract. Our attorneys have the depth of legal knowledge and understanding of bad faith claims to thoroughly prepare and guide our clients toward a successful resolution in the most efficient manner possible.
Insurers That Fail To Honor Their Policies May Be Acting in Bad Faith
To truly act in good faith, an insurance company must honor its end of the policy and strive to perform duties, including but not limited to:
- Contact and speak with the insured’s treating physicians;
- Refrain from misrepresenting what is covered under the policy or committing other fraudulent claims practices or oppressive conduct by seeking to reduce the amounts of the claim legitimately payable under the policy;
- Thoroughly investigate the insured’s claim and to fully inquire into all possible bases that might support payment of the claim.
If your insurance company has ignored these, or many other, good faith duties, our attorneys can file an insurance bad faith lawsuit. Depending on the situation, individuals might be entitled to recover even more monetary compensation than is actually included in the policy. Contact our firm to learn more about the best course of action.
