Insurance Bad Faith

WE HAVE VAST EXPERIENCE AND SUCCESS AGAINST THE LARGEST INSURANCE COMPANIES IN THE NATION.

Representing Consumers and Businesses Against Insurance Fraud

Insurance bad faith, also known as “insurance fraud” is the term used to describe the mistreatment of consumers and businesses by insurance carriers. For example, an insurance company may improperly deny a claim, agree to pay only a portion of the true value of the claim, or delay payment for months or even years.

Under the law of most jurisdictions in the United States, insurance companies owe a duty of good faith and fair dealing to their insureds. This duty is often referred to as the “implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing,” which exists by operation of law in every insurance contract. If an insurance company violates this covenant, the insured may bring an insurance bad faith tort claim against the insurance company in addition to a breach of contract claim.

We are committed to fighting for what is right regardless of how “big” and “bad” our corporate opponents may be.

In addition to “compensatory damages,” which is compensation paid to the plaintiff intended to make her whole, an insurance bad faith claim allows for “punitive” or “exemplary” damages, which are monetary damages intended to punish or make an example out of the wrongdoer. As a result, a plaintiff in an insurance bad faith case may be able to recover an amount greater than the original face value of the insurance policy.
