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 & Associates today.
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:
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.
