Making Insurance Companies Live Up to the Terms of the Policy
After any motor vehicle accident, those involved in the accident look to insurance companies to cover the various losses. The person who has been injured must go to the other driver's insurance company to pay for their medical expenses and other costs arising from the accident. The driver who is at fault for the accident depends on their insurance company to defend them against a potential lawsuit. If the at-fault driver is not insured, the injured driver may look to his or her own uninsured/underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage. Many times, insurance companies are derelict in their duties. In these situations, either party can suffer extensive, unwarranted financial losses.
The lawyers of Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP, take on insurance companies who engage in bad faith practices. Bad faith with automobile insurance claims can involve a wide range of issues, including:
- Failing to defend a lawsuit, accept a reasonable offer of settlement, or indemnify an insured.
- Denying valid claims
- Unreasonably delaying payment
- Rescinding the policy without justification
At GB&W, we do battle with insurance companies in all types of claims. Our attorneys understand the strategies these companies employ to minimize what they pay in claims. When insurers cross the line and engage in bad faith practices, we will hold them accountable. Our law firm prepares every case with the intention of bringing it to trial. We will fully investigate your claims and make a complete accounting of your damages. In many insurance bad faith claims, it is possible to recover punitive damages. These damages are intended to punish the insurance company for acting in bad faith.
