BAD FAITH INSURANCE LITIGATION

At MAS Law Firm, our bad faith insurance litigation trial attorneys handle a variety of bad faith insurance claims throughout Texas, and every time our bad faith insurance litigation trial attorneys go to court, we try to level the playing field for our clients by making it less profitable and a far greater risk for insurance companies to unjustly breach their insurance policies in order to add to their bottom lines.

Our bad faith insurance litigation trial attorneys ensure that insurance companies emphasize fair, prompt, and honest conduct, or pay for the damages they cause. Under Texas law, when an insurance company is found to have acted in bad faith, the policy holder will be able to recover his or her damages, including attorney fees and even punitive damages. Insurance bad faith practices can include:

  • Refusal to investigate claims thoroughly, properly, and in a timely manner.
  • Unreasonable delay in payment / slow payment or stall tactics.
  • Refusal to pay the full value of a claim.
  • Unreasonable claim denials.
  • Unreasonable interpretation of policy language.

Insurance claim adjusters often complicate rather than facilitate claims. This occurs because insurance companies intentionally limit their adjusters’ authority and ability to make decisions based on the actual facts, and insurance companies make their adjustors utilize complex and self-created procedures that is designed delay, confuse, and increase the profit margin of the insurance companies.

Simply put, these insurance company tactics are designed to unreasonably deny or minimize the value of claims in order to cut costs and increase corporate profits. Unfortunately, the people that suffer are the claimants and policyholders. Although not every rejected claim or dispute is the result of bad faith on the part of the insurer, the best way to make sure that the insurance company is not taking advantage of you is to come and consult with one of our bad faith litigation trial attorneys.
