You did everything right, or you thought you did, anyway. You got insurance, you paid your premiums, you struggled through the fine print in all the things they sent you, and then, when the worst happened and you filed a claim, it was denied.
People hope that they will be treated fairly by the companies they deal with, but that’s not always the case. You may have a contract with an insurance company that requires that they pay your claim, but that doesn’t mean they won’t try to slide out of the contract.
It’s called “bad faith,” and when dealing with a bad faith insurance claim, you have rights. Clore Law Group will help you assert your rights and get the compensation you deserve.
Prepare for Insurance Bad Faith
The first thing to remember is that it’s important to always keep a copy of your insurance contract—it will make the process much easier when it comes to challenging a bad faith insurance company on its unfair actions. If you don’t already have one, request one as soon as you can and keep a copy where it will be safe (and where you can remember you’ve stored it).
It’s important to remember that insurance policies are written by the insurance company, with their interests in mind, and their highest interest is not paying out a lot of money on claims. You need to be aware of what your rights are and how you can challenge the insurance company’s determination.
For example, if your property has been subject to catastrophic damage (say, from a fire, flood or hurricane), you have the right to conduct your own evaluation of the value (and loss) of your property. What’s more, the evaluation can be done on a contingency basis, with the fee coming from what is recovered rather than something that has to be paid out at the time.
