What happens when an insurance company is wrong?
When an insurance company handles a claim unfairly, it can give rise to a claim called insurance bad faith. For example, if you were injured by uninsured driver or in a hit and run and are trying to use the UM/UIM coverage in your own insurance, your insurance company should be allowed to send you to an unscrupulous doctor who understates the extent of your injuries. If tactics like this cost you the full value of your claim, we can make the case for you to receive punitive damages from the insurer.
Insurance bad faith can also take the form of wrongful denial of coverage after a business or other loss.

Insurance-related litigation often involves complex procedural issues. Some cases may be beyond the capabilities of a less experienced lawyer who does not possess proven litigation skill and a firm grounding in business or real estate law. You need a skilled advocate who can help you navigate the process and protect your rights and interests at every step.
