Bad Faith Insurance Claims
Let Our Jackson Injury Lawyers Stand Up for Your ClaimInsurance companies collect premiums from their members to protect them from certain risks. While you pay for their promise to safeguard you in the event of a loss, that doesn’t mean the insurance company will always stand strong on this obligation. Bad faith claims can arise when your insurance company denies a claim or benefit that is covered within the terms of your policy. Most people believe that if they regularly pay their premiums, an insurance company will treat them fairly when they submit a claim. While that is generally the rule, in all too many cases, an insurance company will violate its fiduciary duty to its insured to protect their own bottom line.
