Phoenix Commercial General Liability Lawyer

Protecting Arizona Individuals and Business

As a business owner, you rely on insurance to insulate you from the costs associated with claims that might otherwise damage or bankrupt your company. If you insurer fails to act in good faith by denying or delaying valid claims, the damage can be serious.


I am attorney Richard Langerman, and I have helped individuals, business owners and entrepreneurs fight bad faith insurance practices in Arizona for more than 25 years.


Holding Commercial General Liability Insurers Accountable

When you have an insurance claim, you expect your commercial general liability insurer to honor the claim according to the terms of your insurance policy. If you are a small business owner and your general liability insurer has wrongfully denied or delayed payment, contact me.


Insurance companies have two primary responsibilities:

  • Duty to indemnify: When an insured files a claim for benefits under the terms of the policy, the insurer has a responsibility to pay the appropriate benefits. Denial or delay of legitimate claims may constitute an act of bad faith.
  • Duty to defend: When your business is sued for damages, your insurer has a duty to defend you against that suit.


Failure to appropriately perform either duty can constitute insurance bad faith. I have built my legal career on successfully proving personal injury and insurance bad faith actions. I have recovered substantial verdicts and settlements for clients in a range of cases.


My office is ready to put experienced counsel and reliable legal representation behind your commercial general liability bad faith claim. I can help you hold your insurance company accountable, and work to recover the benefits you are owed and any other damages resulting from your insurance company’s bad faith action.
