Bad Faith lawyers who confront insurance companies
Insurance companies make money by selling policies, and they lose money when they pay claims. Our denied insurance claim attorneys have the experience and knowledge to take on insurance companies who delay payments, deny claims or act in bad faith.
First-party insurance claims
A claim against your own insurance policy is known as a first-party claim. When you purchase an insurance policy, you have the right to expect that your valid claim will be paid. Unfortunately, that is not always the case, and you need the support of an experienced Chicago insurance lawyer.
Claims for Unreasonable and Vexatious Delay, aka “Bad Faith” are common and include the following:
Car Insurance Claims
"Bad Faith" in the realm of auto insurance arises when insurers unreasonably delay, underpay, or deny valid claims without a justifiable reason. Such actions can leave claimants facing financial burdens, from repair costs to medical bills, all while grappling with the aftermath of an accident. Our lawyers for car insurance claims can help get what the insurance company promised.
The initial denial of a life insurance claim may be for legitimate reasons, such as the need to determine the proper payee if more than one beneficiary makes a claim for benefits. However, the denial of life insurance benefits without reason is an act of insurance bad faith. Our Illinois insurance attorneys file suit to collect the full amount stipulated in your family life insurance policy.
If you own a business, you need insurance to protect you in the event of a loss such as fire, flood, employee theft, or other business-disrupting event. Claim denials can put you out of business permanently. When you face a business insurance claim denial of $50,000 or more and your insurance company is in breach of promise, we help you receive the coverage that you paid for.
Homeowners - major insurance claims
Homeowners insurance is meant to protect you in the event of major theft or damage to your home. A bad faith denial of your claim can hinder you in recovering your loss. Our property insurance attorneys help you get proper reimbursement under your homeowner's insurance policy.
If you purchased disability insurance, you expected to be covered in the event of a major illness or injury. However, disability claims are commonly challenged by insurance companies and the doctors who work for them. Our medical insurance claims lawyers vigorously fight denials of disability insurance claims in bad faith.
Third-party insurance claims
You may have a major claim against the insurance policy of an individual or company that caused your loss. This is known as a third-party claim. Situations that require the filing of a third-party insurance claim include -
Third-party insurance claims are routinely contested in court. If you have a valid claim, our firm aggressively pursues the compensation you deserve.
