If you are in the unfortunate position of having filed a claim with your insurance company and not receiving what you feel is an adequate response, it may be time to call an Insurance Bad Faith Attorney. These attorneys help the injured individual get their insurance company to pay for medical expenses and lost wages. Insurance companies are infamous for denying claims, so it’s best to have a lawyer fight your case.
When Should You Contact a Bad Faith Insurance Lawyer?
Defend your rights by contacting an attorney if you feel the insurer is acting unfairly. They can tell you if the insurance company’s actions (or inaction) constituted bad faith and what your options are. Waiting could lead to mounting medical bills, especially if you are still in the middle of treatment.
Getting a lawyer involved when the insurance company underestimates your claim is a good idea. An experienced lawyer with access to experts in finance, medicine, and other fields is needed to determine your costs now accurately and in the future. You can get your insurance claim escalated to the next level within the company, or you can go ahead with a lawsuit if you believe the insurance company has acted in bad faith.
What Are the Benefits of Hiring a Bad Faith Insurance Attorney?
Most insurance companies have a team of lawyers dedicated solely to fighting insurance lawsuits and defending claim denials. There are thousands or even millions of claims they want to fight, and yours is just one of them. If you fight your insurance company alone, you may not win. A bad faith insurance lawyer ensures that the insurance company complies with the law.
Lawyers are familiar with:
- How state courts interpret state’s bad faith laws
- What your chances of success are
- what to demand as damages
What Should I Look for When Choosing an Attorney for My Bad Faith Claim?
Not every attorney can handle these types of claims. When selecting the right lawyer to handle your bad faith insurance claims, here are three things to keep in mind.
Identify A Lawyer Who Specializes in Insurance Bad Faith Lawsuits – Bad faith attorneys also have a thorough understanding of insurance and contract law to challenge insurer claims that a procedure is ineffective, experimental, or not medically necessary. Most attorneys who claim to specialize in bad faith insurance spend most of their time on lawsuits in entirely unrelated areas of law. They won’t be able to match the experience and knowledge of attorneys who specialize in this area of law.
Identify an Attorney Who Has the Resources to Handle Your Complex Legal Case – There are thousands of claims filed annually by unhappy customers against major health insurers, so they invest a great deal in a team of experienced attorneys who are solely focused on defending these claims. Choosing a firm with enough resources and manpower to take on a large insurance company is the key to success.
