Insurance companies are required to adequately and timely investigate a claim. If you feel your insurance company has not done this, you need an experience attorney that can handle your bad faith lawsuit. When you question insurance, think Fulmer Sill.

Oftentimes when a loss occurs, the policy holder is in a very vulnerable and tragic situation. This can be made even more stressful and overwhelming when a dispute arises between the policy holder and his insurance company.

The courts have created a law that places additional obligations on insurance companies when handling insurance claims in order to ensure that the insurance company does not take advantage of the policy holder and that the policy holder is promptly paid all benefits. This is known as the insurer’s duty to handle claims with good faith and fair dealing. Essentially, insurance companies must adequately and timely investigate a claim and pay all benefits that are owed to an insured for a loss. Unfortunately, that all too often is not the case and in our years of representing individuals and businesses, we’ve seen firsthand how far insurance companies will go to avoid paying claims. Individuals and families that have been victims of bad faith tactics by an insurance company need to find attorneys with the litigation skills and in depth knowledge of the insurance industry in order to represent their interest.
