We take all insurance bad faith cases on a contingency basis, and we advance all the costs of litigation so that we, as a law firm, are the ones spending our resources to fight the insurance companies.
Q: If I feel like I am getting the run around from my insurance company, how long should I wait before speaking with an experienced insurance bad faith attorney?
You shouldn’t wait at all. It’s a stressful process and it’s one of those situations where knowledge and experience will go a long way.
As soon as you feel like you are not getting anywhere, or you haven’t had any questions answered, it’s always a good idea to reach out to an insurance attorney. No matter what type of claim it is or the scenario, if you feel like the insurance company is not answering your questions, or if you feel like you are stuck and you don’t know what to do, it’s wise to call an insurance attorney to review your policy and discuss the facts and circumstances of your situation.
Q: How important is it that my lawyer know a lot about insurance?
It’s very important. The insurance industry is highly regulated and there are many standards on how claims should be written and regulations on how claims should be handled. A knowledgeable insurance attorney will pull that information and be able to give the best advice.
Q: Besides the insurance policy, what do I bring to your appointment that would help you evaluate my case?
Any and all correspondence that you have with the insurance company, anything that documents and supports the damages you have incurred, whether it be an automobile accident, home loss, fire loss or some other type of claim.
