Need An Insurance Law Dispute Attorney?
They say the law is a naturally adversarial process, but so is the relationship between insurance companies and those who they insure. This is particularly true once it comes time to pay out on a claim. You’ll notice the insurance company immediately going to work to attempt to devalue your claim, blame you for an accident, or accuse you of making up injuries. These tactics work to the extent that you allow them to. Insurance companies count on those who won’t fight back because even if that only accounts for a small percentage of people, that’s money that they don’t have to pay out.
This is particularly true of traffic accidents in which one party’s insurance may be responsible for paying damages to another. Once a claim is made against the insurance policy, the insurance adjuster goes into overdrive employing specialized software the sole purpose of which is to devalue the claim. Having an attorney on your side who is familiar with the process of negotiating with insurance companies can make a huge difference.

Bad Faith Insurance Denials in Indiana
Insurance companies have a duty act in the best interests of their customers. But sometimes, insurance companies test the boundaries of what they can get away with. If they deny a claim in bad faith, they can be held liable for that too.
If an insurance company breaches their contract with the insured and denies a valid claim against their policy, not only will they be forced to pay out the claim, but they could responsible for other damages that the claimant incurred as a result of their bad-faith denial. They may also be held liable for punitive damages for breaching the contract.
When this occurs, it helps to have someone on your side who can bring down the full legal backing of the law on the insurance company that is denying your claim.
