When Insurance Companies Don’t Act in Good Faith We Hold Them Accountable
San Diego Insurance Bad Faith Lawyers
Individuals pay insurance premiums with the understanding that the insurance carrier will act in good faith when a benefits claim is applied for. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for insurance carriers to delay, challenge or deny a claim without proper reason. When this happens, typically, the insurer is acting in bad faith. Contact our San Diego insurance bad faith attorneys and discuss your situation through a free consultation.
Clients trust the attorneys at Donahue & Horrow LLP, for a thorough understanding of the law and our ability to provide individual attention. We understand how frustrating it can feel to have your insurance company — whom you have paid premiums to for years — deny your benefits claim. It is our goal to hold insurance carriers responsible for their actions while fighting for your maximum compensation.
Insurance Bad Faith Laws Protect You, The Consumer
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. In many situations, you might be able to recover more monetary compensation than is actually included in your benefits. Contact our firm to learn more about the best course of action.
