Holding Insurers Accountable For Acting In Bad Faith
The lawyers at Towe & Fitzpatrick, PLLC have decades of experience dealing with insurance companies and making sure our clients rights are protected and they are treated legally and fairly. We have handled hundreds of claims for clients who have faithfully paid premiums for insurance coverage, only to have their claims denied or unfairly evaluated.
Prime examples are when our clients have purchased uninsured motorist or underinsured motorist coverage and are involved in an accident. Clients may think that because it is their own insurance company, they will be treated fairly. That is usually not the case.
What To Expect During The Process
Once the claim goes into the claims division, an adjuster trained to pay as little as possible is assigned. When this happens, we will fight aggressively to make sure our clients rights are fully enforced under the contract. Other examples are when insurance companies writing life or disability insurance try to get out of coverage by post-claim underwriting or other illegal practices.
Sometimes the insurance company’s behavior is so bad that it can give rise to a separate case for insurance bad faith. The lawyers at Towe & Fitzpatrick, PLLC are experienced in bringing insurance bad faith claims.
