WV, OH, & PA Insurance Lawyers
Insurance companies are required by law to handle claims in good faith. When policy claims are denied without reason or settlements are delayed unnecessarily, a court may find the insurance company to be operating in bad faith. At Bordas & Bordas, we represent the rights of consumers in insurance disputes. If you have questions about the conduct of your insurer, contact a bad faith insurance attorney.
Bad faith insurance claim cases are filed when insurance companies act improperly in the handling of claims on their own policies.
Inappropriate insurance company conduct can include:
- Delayed settlement
- Refusal to make a reasonable settlement offer
- Denied claims without reasonable justification
- Refusal to provide coverage
- Refusal to pay, or promptly pay, life, health, or disability insurance policies
- Failure to handle claims fairly, reasonably, and promptly
Our attorneys, at Bordas & Bordas, have extensive experience prosecuting bad faith insurance practice claims. Our attorneys lecture on bad faith insurance practices and have served as expert witnesses in insurance litigation.
