It is very important not to give up just because your insurance broker or adjuster disclaimed coverage.  Insurance brokers and claim adjusters don’t work for you, their goal is to protect the interests of their insurance companies, not yours. If your claim was denied, underpaid, or delayed our team of experienced insurance lawyers can help you obtain the maximum compensation to which you are entitled.

Why You Need a PERSONAL INJURY Attorney

Having legal counsel that you can trust is invaluable whenever you need to deal with difficult insurance companies. Remember that despite what any insurance company may claim to the contrary, it has no incentive to help you secure compensation through a claim. Every claim an insurance company pays cuts into its profits, so it generally looks for all justifications it can find to reduce or deny claims whenever possible.

An experienced personal injury attorney is an invaluable asset in this situation. When you choose the Avenue Law Firm to represent you against a large insurance carrier, you can expect meticulous, personalized, and responsive legal counsel through every phase of your case. In addition, we will carefully examine the details of your policy and any correspondence you have had with the insurer thus far. Many insurance companies rely on claimants’ lack of awareness of their legal rights and are willing to fight to escape liability for covered losses.

Most insurance companies are using the same tactics: first deny then delay. When insurance companies deny coverage they know that a certain percentage of claimants will give up and not pursue them further. Every claim that is not pursued means money saved for the insurance company.  Our law firm can assist you with filing a claim or take over your already denied insurance claim. We do not charge any upfront fees and handle all insurance claims on a contingency basis – meaning we only get paid if we get your insurance company to pay you. 

What Is Bad Faith Insurance?

All insurance companies in the United States have various legal responsibilities to fulfill when handling policyholders’ claims. First, every insurance company has the right and the responsibility to investigate every claim to ensure it is legitimate. Second, every insurance company must handle all claims in good faith. This means they must use appropriate methods in evaluating the legitimacy of a claim, and insurance company representatives must be honest in all interactions with policyholders and claimants.

Bad faith insurance” is a term used to describe unethical behaviors from an insurance company. A few examples of bad faith tactics some insurance claim adjusters may employ to avoid paying out on claims are:

  • Unreasonable delays in handling a claim. Some insurance companies will intentionally delay the handling of claims to discourage claimants from pressing for updates.
  • Misrepresentation of the elements of a policy. Insurance policies are complex and very carefully constructed. Insurance companies typically rely on this to intimidate claimants into backing down from the insurance company’s rulings on their claims.
  • Unethical interactions. Some insurance claim adjusters will outright lie to claimants about aspects of their coverage, attempt to intimidate or threaten claimants with legal action or engage in other blatantly unethical behaviors to avoid liability for claims.

Bad faith insurance is a significant issue, and many insurance companies have used the uncertainty generated by the pandemic and the unprecedented nature of the situation to justify bad faith tactics against claimants. Unfortunately, many insurance companies get away with such behavior due to claimants’ lack of awareness of their rights. If you suspect that an insurance company has handled your claim regarding COVID-19 business interruption in bad faith, call our firm. An experienced attorney can help determine the best options for legal recourse available to you.
