Insurance companies are self-interested, which is why it is necessary for the law office of Scott & Wallace LLP to sometimes pursue insurance and bad faith claims. Insurance companies profit by delaying payment on good faith claims, because delay makes them money. Insurance companies receive thousands of claims every day and wrongfully delay or even deny many of them in order to save money. Since few people take the time to dispute their claim with insurers, insurance companies are able to retain millions of dollars by denying, delaying, and underpaying claims. Such delays often constitute bad faith claims.
If an insurance company refuses to pay your claim, denies payment, offers an insufficient payment amount, or unreasonably delays payment of your claim, contact us to set up a free consultation. We fight bad faith claims for our clients.
Here at Scott & Wallace LLP, we believe that consumers should receive what they are promised. We live by this simple code–it is how we conduct our business.

As a Tallahassee based law firm, Scott & Wallace LLP is ideally situated to pursue claims against big insurance companies in Florida and Southwest Georgia. This isn’t something that you want to try to take on by yourself. Insurance companies often count on customers to simply roll over and take the mistreatment. By retaining a lawyer with Scott & Wallace of Tallahassee, Florida, you will be ahead of the curve by taking a step that most victims of insurance and bad faith claims never take.
The lawyers at Scott & Wallace will review your policy and determine whether you have a bad faith claim against your insurer. If so, we will fight to recover the benefits of the policy for the claim, consequential losses and damages suffered for emotional distress, lost income, and punitive damages.
