An insurance policy is a legal contract, in which the policyholder agrees to pay premiums, and the insurance provider agrees to pay damages for certain events. Insurance companies are large corporations focused on profits and represented by powerful law firms. It is to their advantage to deny or undervalue legitimate claims.
At Cogdill Nichols Rein Wartelle Andrews, our lawyers protect the rights of individuals and businesses in insurance coverage disputes and bad faith insurance litigation. The insurance claim attorneys have successfully recovered substantial amounts in damages for our clients through jury verdicts and settlements reached in negotiations, arbitration, and mediation.
Is Your Insurer Refusing To Pay?
If your insurance company is not treating you fairly, you may be entitled to damages for insurance bad faith in addition to the benefits you applied for. Insurance bad faith is a broad category describing abuses such as claim denial when there is clearly a legitimate claim, undervaluing a claim, and failure to pay or delayed payment of benefits.
