Insurance Bad Faith

Agoura Hills Insurance Bad Faith Lawyer

Supporting Clients through Complex Cases in Los Angeles

You don’t expect your insurance company to give you a lowball offer, deny your claim, or delay damages when you need compensation after an accident. However, insurance companies are often guilty of such practices for the sole purpose of reducing the amount that they are obligated to pay you after you’ve been injured.

If you are currently having trouble recovering compensation from your insurer in Los Angeles, discuss your legal options with an insurance bad faith attorney at Effres & Effres today.

Insurance Company Bad Faith

When you purchase a policy from an insurance company or agent, the company is required to uphold the terms of the policy in good faith. The insurance policy is a contract: the company is supposed to provide you the coverage that you have signed up for in exchange for payment of regular premiums.

It’s a fairly straightforward agreement, but very often insurance companies backtrack when it comes to honoring their end of the deal.

Here are just some ways in which your insurer might attempt to save company money:

  • The company may delay your valid claim.
  • The company may deny your valid claim altogether.
  • The company may make you a lowball offer that does not cover your damages.
  • The company fails to respond instantly to your claim.
  • The company also fails to provide you the reasons for all of these actions.

Insurer breach of contract can put a policyholder through tremendous stress. Whatever the type of insurance that you purchased – life insurance, homeowners insurance, auto insurance, disability insurance or any other type of coverage – the company is required to stick to the terms of the agreement and pay out a legal and valid claim according to the terms of your policy. Whether your insurance company is currently denying your claim or making a lowball offer, you have legal options for recovery.

    Our Clients' Success Stories

    • "I would hope that nobody NEEDS to have an injury lawyer, but if they did, I would absolutely recommend Effres and Associates in a heartbeat."
      In August of 2015 I was involved in a serious motorcycle accident that involved the loss of operation of my dominant arm, as well as a traumatic brain injury. My parents had contacted Effres and associates (they were referred to them by another lawyer for another injury to a relative) and they drove from Agoura Hills down to Pasadena immediately, surveyed the accident scene, and then arrived at the hospital. Over the next two and a half years, Justin Effres and his father Steven Effres, relentlessly pursued this case for me, even when at one point it seemed like there wasn't much that could be done to resolve the situation. I had to go through the typical trial stuff such as meetings, deposition, medical appointments for Effres' firm and for the defense, but Effres did all that he could to make everything doable and smooth as possible for me. My perception of lawyers was certainly changed for the better after working with Justin and his dad, because of their genuine sincerity. They were always available and fully knowledgeable of the questions that my family and I had for them. Despite the case dragging on for over 2 years, they never left me hanging or feeling like the case was going nowhere, because Justin kept searching for answers and kept me updated with everything. All of his hard work paid off in a successful outcome for me. I would hope that nobody NEEDS to have an injury lawyer, but if they did, I would absolutely recommend Effres and Associates in a heartbeat.

    • "Your sincerity and concern of my well-being was above and beyond."
      Dear Steven Effres, I just wanted to thank you sincerely from the bottom of my heart for all your hard work in settling my personal injury case. I could not ask for more from you and your staff. Your sincerity and concern of my well-being was above and beyond anything I could have wished for. I’m currently in the process of getting my real estate license, and making a couple of real estate investments. Thank you for giving me the freedom to start a new life for myself and children. I could not have done it without you. Sincerely yours
