Insurance Bad Faith & Your Rights: Here’s What Else You Should Know
Q – Are all insurance denials bad faith cases?
A – No. While insurers’ denials of valid claims are usually grounds for bad faith cases, not all denials are invalid or represent bad faith practices. In fact, when denials are issued because a policy has lapsed, the policy doesn’t cover the claim, etc., these denials can be valid.
If, however, your claim has been denied by an insurer and you believe that your claim and policy were valid/active, talk to an experienced Phoenix personal injury lawyer at the Law Office of Richard Langerman to find out if you may have been the target of bad faith. You have nothing to lose – and potentially a lot to gain – by learning more about your rights.
Q – What are the options for standing up to insurance bad faith practices?
A – In general, there are three options for standing up to insurers who have acted in bad faith, with these being to:
- Try to negotiate a settlement with the insurer – Usually, this will involve appealing the decision and showing why a claim was valid. If insurers refuse to offer reasonable settlements in such negotiations, however, then the following two options will be left.
- Sue the insurer – In other words, move forward with an insurance bad faith lawsuit.
- Do nothing – Just because someone is the victim of bad faith practices doesn’t mean that (s)he will want to do anything about it. Of course, it’s always an option to do nothing and let an insurer get away with bad faith… but why let insurers keep money you deserve?
Q – What should I do if I think I’ve been the target of insurance bad faith?
A – Contact an experienced Phoenix personal injury lawyer at the Law Office of Richard Langerman ASAP. Because there are strict time limits for pursuing these claims, it’s best not to wait any longer and to take action now.
While you will not have to pay anything to find out more about your rights and best options for standing up to insurers, you also won’t have to pay anything to get your case started; nor will we charge you any legal fees if there is no recovery in your case.
