Florida Insurance Litigation Lawyer
An insurance policy is a contract between the policyholder and the insurance company. You pay your monthly premiums and in return, the insurer provides financial assistance for covered events. If your insurance company fails to honor the terms of your agreement or comply with standards established by Florida law, you may file a bad faith insurance lawsuit.
At Corless Barfield Trial Group, we are highly experienced in insurance law and can easily recognize valid bad faith insurance cases. Because we have previously represented large and small insurance companies throughout Florida, we know the tactics these businesses rely on to minimize or avoid paying claims. We draw on this insider's knowledge to build solid cases for policyholders.
What Is Bad Faith Insurance?
An insurance company acts in bad faith when it:
- Willfully denies a legitimate claim with no basis
- Unreasonably delays payment
- Offers an unreasonably low settlement to compensate for damages
- Fails to promptly investigate a claim
- Delays or denies crucial medical treatment
- Improperly interprets your policy language
- Fails to defend
There are several reasons insurers take these actions. Sometimes, the claims investigators are improperly trained. Other times, the insurer is attempting to minimize payments. Regardless of the reason, it is important that policyholders understand their rights and have an attorney on their side.
