Establishing Wrongdoing In A Bad Faith Insurance Claim
If you took steps to protect yourself, your family or your business by purchasing insurance coverage, it can be immensely frustrating if the insurance company does not want to hold up their end of the bargain in the event of a claim. Unfortunately, an insurance company is far more willing to cash a premium payment check than it is to pay out what is owed. If your insurance company denied your claim, canceled your coverage or failed to pay a claim, Cochran & Edwards can help.
Failing To Act In Good Faith
Many insurance coverage disputes arise after a policyholder receives a claim denial or evasive answers when pursuing a claim. The law requires insurance companies to investigate, negotiate and settle all claims in good faith and with fair dealing to permit policyholders to receive the benefits of their contract.
Although insurance companies are supposed to treat the interests of policyholders as equal to their own, they often prioritize their own interests by paying out as little as possible or by denying payment completely.
We can help with insurance coverage disputes related to:
- Claim denial
- Delayed claim processing or payment
- Failing to adequately investigate a claim
- Canceled coverage after an accident claim
- Failure to pay a claim or make a reasonable settlement offer
- Threatening a policyholder
Not every denied claim amounts to a bad faith case. But if you feel that your insurance company failed to treat you fairly, we can help.
