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.
