Disputes with Insurance Companies

In an effort to protect their financial well-being, almost everyone has purchased one or more types of insurance in their life, whether it be automobile insurance, homeowner's insurance, disability insurance, or life insurance. And, unfortunately, almost everyone suffers a loss at some point that requires them to submit a claim to their insurance company. When handling a claim, an insurance company has a duty of good faith and fair dealing to its policyholder, the insured. If the insurance company breaches that duty, it is called "bad faith." Bad faith can arise from the following types of conduct:

  • An insurance company's refusal to pay a claim without a reasonable basis
  • An insurance company's refusal to pay the full amount of a claim
  • An insurance company's failure to properly investigate a claim
  • An insurance company's delaying of payment of a claim
  • An insurance company's failure to defend its policyholder in a lawsuit

The attorneys at Thomas Braun Bernard & Burke, LLP have significant experience dealing with insurance issues and insurance companies. Our attorneys are often involved in litigating whether an occurrence is covered under an insurance policy, acting on behalf of policyholders in disputes over insurance claims, and holding insurance companies accountable when they have acted in bad faith.
