Westminster Insurance Bad Faith Lawyers
Policyholders expect that their insurance company will abide by the terms of a contract and issue prompt benefit payment for covered concerns in the event that a claim becomes necessary. Regrettably, these persons may find themselves disappointed as an insurer delays, denies, underpays, or otherwise intentionally mishandles the claim. Bad faith actions by insurance companies are too frequent and may be met with legal action by the wronged policyholder.
If your claim has been processed in a manner inconsistent with the terms of the policy or an insurer’s obligation to you, it is advisable to consult with a knowledgeable attorney about your situation. Contact the Denver insurance bad faith lawyers of Hull & Zimmerman, P.C., at (303) 423-1770 today.
What Is Bad Faith?
Insurance companies have a contractual obligation to their policyholders and must act in accordance with their agreement. When this would run counter to the financial interests of the insurer, however, there is a clear conflict of interest which may lead to improper action by the insurance company.
An insurance company may be deemed to have acted in bad faith when the following occur:
- Unreasonably delayed payment to a policyholder
- Failure to pay a policyholder altogether
- Failure to pay a policyholder the proper amount of money
- Disrupting evidence or information tied to a claim
- Failure to properly investigate a claim
That an insurance company would act in such a manner when policyholders are in a position of greatest need is inexcusable. Let us help you to hold them accountable.
If you believe that your insurance company has intentionally violated the terms of your policy in order to serve its own interests, we can help you to pursue financial compensation through legal action.
