Bad Faith Insurance Cases

You sustained injuries in a car accident that was not your fault. Despite your pain and mounting medical bills, the insurance company has failed to evaluate your case fairly, and they made a low-ball offer. It feels wrong. We know how to make it right. This greedy move by the insurer may create an opportunity for you to obtain a substantially greater recovery. We have succeeded at turning insurer greed into a full, fair recovery for our clients numerous times. In fact, just recently, we obtained a $375,000 recovery for our client even though the total available insurance was only $100,000.

Bad faith occurs when an insurance company fails to act fairly. Insurers can act in bad faith by:

  • Trying to take advantage of injured people,
  • Improperly or unfairly evaluating a claim,
  • Failing to properly pay benefits to its insured, whether they are medical or UIM/UM benefits, or
  • Failing to take steps to adequately protect their at-fault insured.

When insurance companies get greedy and try to take advantage of our clients, we know how to make them pay what they should. In fact, when we win a bad faith case, we make the insurer pay way more than they would have if they had originally evaluated and paid the claim fairly.
