From the insurance company's perspective, paying out claims simply is not beneficial to the bottom line. In an attempt to avoid payouts, they can knowingly refuse to pay legitimate claims, delay the payout process, or demand unreasonable measures from claimants. Most often this is related to:
- Refusal to offer defense when a policyholder is being sued
- Refusal to pay benefits on health insurance
- Refusal to pay disability benefits
In the case of the first issue, it sometimes arises that a policyholder will have pending litigation, the insurance company will not settle at the appropriate time, and then if/when a trial occurs and a judgment is awarded against the policyholder, the company will act in bad faith and refuse to pay the judgment.
In these cases, it is almost always the ideal solution to contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible to begin building the case for litigation if they will not relax their hardball tactics.
In an attempt to bolster accountability and consumer protection, we believe that these companies should be held accountable, and we are here for you.
