Insurance Claims & Disputes
Gainesville & Ocala Personal Injury Lawyers Fight for You
If you have suffered a devastating setback to your lifestyle, whether due to a personal injury, a natural disaster, or an accident of any kind, you may struggle to receive the compensation your insurance policy promises. Insurance companies can be very self-serving; they wrongfully deny claims every day, and as very few people bother to dispute their claims, the insurance companies are able to keep millions of dollars for themselves.
If your insurance company has failed to follow through on its responsibilities, you may have an insurance dispute claim that you need a professional and knowledgeable lawyer to address. The team at Allen Law Firm, P.A. are qualified to fight the battle with the insurance company for you.
A Case of Bad Faith
If your insurance company has denied you the funds you need to recover from your tragedy, it could be acting in “bad faith.” This indicates the unfair or unreasonable behavior of an insurance company towards its policyholders.
One of the leading duties of insurance companies is to demonstrate fairness in all their dealings with clients. When they write their policies or handle claims, an invisible or implied commitment to practice evenhandedness towards their insured holds companies accountable. The law backs this commitment, but insurance companies sometimes do not.Instances of bad faith behavior on the part of the insurance company include:
- Failing to investigate a claim
- Interpreting of policy language obscurely
- Denying the settlement of your case or the reimbursement of your loss
- Denying the benefits of a claim
- Terminating a claim that should have been paid
- Delaying payments to a policyholder
- Failing to defend a policyholder being sued under a policy with a liability provision
- Attempting to lowball payment on a claim
