Punitive Damages for Extreme Insurance Bad Faith Cases
In injury and insurance bad faith cases, juries and judges may award compensatory damages. Compensatory damages are intended to give the wronged individuals or businesses compensation for money owed and other damages suffered as a result of the actions of the wrongdoer.
In cases of extreme wrongdoing, some companies may be required to pay punitive damages. Punitive damages are additional awards meant to punish the offender for its actions. While punitive damages are unusual, if substantial malfeasance can be proved, punitive damages can significantly increase the victims’ total recovery.
I am lawyer Richard Langerman, and I have more than 25 years of experience in the Phoenix area working with clients who have been wronged or victimized by insurance companies acting in bad faith.
Seeking Punitive Damages in Unusual Cases
Some insurance companies act against the interest of their policyholders. They will delay or deny claims based on very little evidence, creating financial hardship and uncertainty for the people who were relying on those benefits.
I can help you recover appropriate compensatory damages in insurance bad faith claims. My office can also investigate whether the insurance company’s conduct warrants punitive damages.
Punitive damages can be difficult to obtain. I have built a successful reputation among former clients and peers for reliable representation in and out of the courtroom. I have recovered significant jury verdicts, including verdicts of punitive damages.
