Insurance Bad Faith Claims
San Francisco Bay Area Injury Attorney
You pay your insurance premiums, hoping you will never need to make a claim, but depending on the coverage just in case. When the time comes for you to make a claim, the insurance company may try to back out of holding up its end of the bargain by denying your legitimate claim, delaying your claim, or underpaying. Our San Francisco bad faith insurance attorneys can help you stand up to the insurance company so that you can collect the money you are entitled to.
Bad Faith Insurance Practices
We live in a society where insurance is just a necessary part of life, something you are required by law to purchase if you drive a vehicle, operate certain types of businesses, or take out a mortgage on a home. Unfortunately, the insurance companies are notorious for doing everything they can to avoid paying, often turning what should be a routine insurance claim into a lengthy legal battle.
The insurance company has its own team of dedicated attorneys whose sole purpose is to find ways to keep your money out of your hands. If your insurance company is trying to cheat you out of the money you deserve, you need your own attorney, one who knows their tactics and how to beat them, to level the playing field so that you can get full and fair payment.
Examples of bad faith insurance practice include:
- Denying a valid claim
- Delaying investigation of a claim
- Delaying payment
- Denying some, but not all, of the benefits you should receive
- Offering less money than your claim is worth
- Unreasonable interpretation of policy language
- Unreasonable policy cancellation
