In a proactive effort, people purchase an insurance policy to protect both the policyholders themselves and their families against unexpected catastrophic events such as car accidents, house fires, and other various forms of personal injury. It’s comforting for policyholders to know that an insurance policy – whether it be health insurance, life insurance, auto insurance, etc. – will be there to protect them financially.
Unfortunately, in many cases with insurance coverage, the insurance company doesn’t deal with the claim in good faith, which can leave the policyholder’s claim denied. Additionally, the insurance company may only agree to pay a portion of the individual’s claim or delay payment of the insurance claim for months or even years.
These determinations by the insurance company can often make your problems worse and even lead to financial instability. These types of actions are referred to as “bad faith,” and you will need a lawyer experienced in bad faith claims to help obtain you the compensation that you deserve through the duty of good faith.
The Pennsylvania bad faith insurance lawyers at Haggerty, Goldberg, Schleifer & Kupersmith, P.C. represent those with valid claims who have been unfairly denied coverage due to bad faith. If you have been impacted by a bad faith case, you may be entitled to compensatory damages and possibly punitive damages.
The whole point of purchasing insurance is so that if something unexpected happens, such as a serious illness or death, your well-being will be protected.
