At Scott & Wallace, we believe that you should get what you pay for. Insurance shouldn’t be any different. But that’s not always the case. At the end of the day, insurance companies are self-interested. Their loyalty is to their investors and shareholders. When push comes to shove, they may put their profits over their insureds. When an insurance company fails to negotiate a claim in good faith – when they try to save money by delaying or denying a meritorious claim – this is called bad faith. Thankfully there are laws in place to dissuade this type of behavior. When insurance companies act in bad faith, they can be forced to pay out more than the contracted coverage and your attorneys’ fees.
Insurance claims are already confusing and overwhelming, especially when you’re not even sure if the insurance company is behaving properly. Be sure to contact Scott & Wallace as soon as you can to receive the care and compensation that you deserve. It is our goal to leave you feeling stress-free while we take your case and move it forward to resolution. 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 your rightful policy benefits, consequential losses, all damages suffered due to emotional distress, any lost income, and applicable punitive damages.
