We all deserve to be treated fairly. Part of that is everyone holds up their end of a bargain. When you buy insurance (e.g., auto, home, or health), you agree to make timely payments in exchange for timely benefits.
Providing timely benefits requires the insurance company to fully and fairly pay claims, promptly. Insurance companies owe you a duty of good faith and fair dealing. This should prevent the insurance company from undervaluing your claim. It should also prevent the insurance company from exposing you to personal liability if you caused an accident.
Sadly, insurance companies violate the duty it owes to you resulting in delayed payment, no payment, or risk of you losing your personal assets. When this happens, you may be able to sue your insurance company for “bad faith.”
Gage Mathers understands that insurance companies are in business to make money, not to help you, and some are willing to commit fraud to do it. Adjustors and their supervisors might conspire to deny you the benefits you paid for or force you through a series of obstacles. This is especially common with automobile insurers, and our insurance bad faith lawyers can help you hold devious insurance companies liable for their bad behavior.
