Fighting For Insurance Coverage
We all trust that when we submit a valid claim to our insurance company, it will act in good faith. Oftentimes, however, this is not the case. Insurance companies often deny valid claims outright – many times with no reason at all. They know that many policyholders will simply choose not to dispute their decision, ultimately saving them millions of dollars a year.
Insurance companies are notorious for putting profits over people. They are beholden to their shareholders and board of directors and benefit financially when policyholders do not get the payouts to which they are entitled. Some insurance companies only pay out when the policyholder finally makes a legal move.

Why Was My Insurance Claim Denied?
Many insurance companies will create extensive and complex bureaucratic processes to stop claimants from collecting. Any misstep in the process brings your claim to a stop. Others take advantage of the fine print in your contract to exclude events that seem intuitively like they should be covered.
An insurance company will act in bad faith in numerous ways to deny legitimate claims, such as:
- Denying that a valid claim is covered under the policy
- Delaying investigation or payment of a claim
- Paying only partial benefits for a claim
What Is Bad Faith Litigation?
Bad faith is simply a cause of action against an insurance company that has intentionally denied the payment of a properly submitted insurance claim for no debatable reason. Bad faith claims involve health and life insurance, accidental death insurance, disability insurance, automobile, property and cancer insurance.
