When an insurance company unreasonably delays payments, denies valid claims, or fails to settle claims within the limits of the policy, they are acting in “bad faith.” An insurance bad faith lawyer at Burnetti, P.A. may be able to help expedite payment of the claim, and will fight for the compensation the policyholder deserves.

- Delaying or denying critical medical care
- Attempting to under-settle or “lowball” the payment amount on the claim
- Not renewing or canceling a policy after a policyholder files a claim
Schedule a Free Case Evaluation to Discuss Your Insurance Dispute
Profit motivated insurance companies have an economic incentive to act in bad faith. They regularly deny valid claims, anticipating that policy holders will not dispute the denial or call an attorney to fight for the maximum recovery owed to them. This helps the insurance company make more money.
If the policyholder does dispute the denial, the insurance company may extend a “lowball” offer to settle the claim. Financial hardship and uncertainty about legal rights may cause some policyholders to accept this offer. Before agreeing to compensation, discuss your insurance dispute with a bad faith lawyer who will look out for your best interests.
