Unfair Claims Settlement Practices

Get True Justice for an Insurance Company’s Unfair Claim Settlement Practices

The legal team of The Doan Law Office has extensive experience in fighting for the rights of injured men, women, and children. As a result, we understand how insurance companies intentionally game and abuse the settlement process. Indeed, more than a few insurance companies engage in what legally are known as unfair claim settlement practices.

States across the country have enacted laws regarding unfair claim settlement practices by insurance companies. The laws generally contain the same types of provisions. Included in these statutes are itemizations of the kinds of improper conduct by an insurance company that will be considered an unfair claim settlement practice.

Examples of Unfair Claim Settlement Practices

An example of an unfair claim settlement practice is an insurance company failing to complete an investigation into a claim without a bona fide reason. Failing to respond to reasonable communications represents another type of unfair claim settlement practice.

In the final analysis, these types of actions, or inactions, are designed to thwart a person like you from obtaining compensation deserved for a particular claim. An insurance claim lawyer from The Doan Law firm can assist you in identifying conduct on the part of an insurance company that constitutes an unfair claim settlement practice.

Compensation in an Unfair Claim Settlement Practices Case

The first place a member of our legal team will turn when it comes to determining potential compensation in your unfair claim settlement practices case is the existing laws in your state regarding this type of activity by an insurance company. For example, in some jurisdictions, if a finding is made that an insurance company has engaged in an unfair claim settlement practice in your case, you may receive up to treble, or triple, damages, an amount of compensation three-times what you were able to obtain from the insurance company in the first instance.

Other types of losses we will see compensation for you include:

  • costs and expenses incurred because insurance company misconduct
  • other types of expenses
  • lost opportunities, including interest income on deserved compensation
  • mental anguish and emotional distress

Depending on the conduct of an insurance company in regard to its settlement practices, you may also be able to seek punitive damages, if a lawsuit against an insurer becomes necessary in your case. Punitive damages represent additional compensation to you. They are also designed to punish an insurance company for particularly egregious unfair claim settlement practices.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
