In the event of an emergency or accident where someone is injured or killed, people usually have insurance policies to help them pay for the damages that they incur. Typical insurance companies act in good faith and generally try to help their policyholder as much as possible. However, there are situations that may arise that may cause insurance companies to go against what the law says they should do, thus acting in what is known as “Bad Faith”. If an insurance company is denying your rightful claim to compensation for a loss or injury, it is imperative that you contact our expert Alabama insurance law attorneys right away.
While the exact reason as to why an insurance company may deny a claim initially might not be known, more than likely is it out of simple greed. Insurance companies, just like any other business, are in the game to make money. They do this by collecting monthly premiums from policyholders and denying claims. If an insurance company paid every single claim that people pursued, they would be broke. This certainly doesn’t make it right or lawful if they deny a policyholder’s rightful claim. After you are hurt in an accident and are entitled to compensation, the policy you hold with the insurance company is a contract which states they should pay you. Insurance companies engaged in these practices need to be brought forth and shown to all for the malicious practices they take on — this is precisely where our top insurance law lawyers can help.
When not denying your claim outright, these greedy companies may delay or prolong your claim as much as possible. This is an old tactic used to see just how long you are willing to pursue your compensation. Other times the insurance company may award you a settlement but at a significantly lower amount than what you are entitled to.
All of these tactics are considered bad faith and our experienced insurance law attorneys can help. Our law firm has over three decades of litigation experience fighting these greedy companies and will not rest until your case is settled.
