Free Consultation on Insurance Disputes – Contingency Fee Basis
At Merlin Law Group, P.A., our bad faith insurance attorneys handle insurance bad faith claims throughout the U.S. and level the playing field for policyholders by making it less profitable and a far greater risk for insurance companies to breach their insurance policies. By asserting a policyholder’s right to recover up to the policy limits, in addition to attorneys’ fees and punitive damages, we ensure that insurance companies emphasize fair, prompt, and honest conduct, or pay for the damages they cause.
Insurance bad faith practices can include:
- Refusal to investigate claims thoroughly, properly, and in a timely manner
- Unreasonable delay in payment / slow payment, or stall tactics
- Refusal to pay the full value of a claim
- Unreasonable claim denials
- Unreasonable interpretation of policy language
Unfortunately, insurance claim adjusters often find their hands tied — limited by restrictive claims processing guidelines designed to cut costs and increase profits for the insurance company. In these cases, adjusters have neither the authority nor the support to timely and fairly process a claim. Insurers may use various tactics to avoid prompt or full payment, or to justify a claim denied — even to the point of engaging in bad faith claim practices.
