Representation for Victims of Insurance Bad Faith
You pay insurance companies to protect you in the event of unforeseen circumstances. When they fail to provide the services that you have paid for in good faith, they have violated their agreement. The attorneys in our Austin, Corpus Christi, El Paso, Houston and San Antonio offices provide experienced representation for victims of insurance bad faith claims.
While many insurance companies operate fairly, it cannot be ignored that every insurance company has a great incentive to cheat you. Insurance companies can make their money from basically three sources: 1) premiums it collects from its insureds; 2) its own investments, such as the stock market; and 3) by wrongfully denying claims and keeping your money. When an insurance company tries the third method, they have either broken a contract, broken the law, or both! In this case, you need Wayne Wright LLP on your side.
Insurance Company Obligations
Insurance companies have an obligation to exercise good faith in their relationship with you, the insured. Some of these obligations include:
- Investigating reported claims in a timely fashion
- Paying claims promptly
- Paying the full value of the claim
The insurance policy acts as the contract between the insurer and the insured. Any breach of this contract or a failure to keep these obligations on the part of the insurer may be an act of insurance bad faith. Our attorneys aggressively pursue fair compensation from insurance companies.
Your Options for Insurance Bad Faith
Before contacting an attorney, we encourage you to contact the insurer directly and resolve the claim on your own. A letter stating the claim and outlining specific requirements for its settlement can provide additional pressure for the agency to determine a settlement. It can also serve as documentation should you have to file an insurance bad faith lawsuit. If the company fails to respond, or unfairly denies your claim, our attorneys will go to work for you. We will review and help to interpret your policy. Our attorneys can help you determine if a settlement is appropriate. Having legal representation on your side encourages the insurer to address the claim with the seriousness it deserves.
