As a law-abiding citizen, you most likely pay your dues to your insurance company. Despite the costs of insurance, you still pay your monthly premiums with the assumption that your insurance company will be at your side in the event of a major emergency, accident, or personal injury.
You could be left speechless, however, if your insurance company fails to pay you your rightful money when you are in need. If you are the victim of insurance bad faith or if you suspect that your insurance company is acting in bad faith, you must act quickly.
At The Law Offices of Gerald L. Marcus, we are staunchly loyal to our clients and only represent real people who are facing real legal issues. Our Los Angeles personal injury attorneys stand ready and equipped to undergo any type of investigation to get down to the root of the matter.
Insurance laws in the state of California require that all insurance companies act in good faith to policy holders in good standing. Under the protection of the law, your insurance company must act in the best interests of its policyholders. Unfortunately, this does not always happen.
Examples of insurance bad faith may include:
If your insurance company has acted in bad faith, you may be entitled to receive punitive damages. You may be able to collect the money owed to you under the contract of your policy. In addition, you may be able to collect more compensation for the injuries or damages that you sustained as a result of the unreasonable act of bad faith.
There are many red flags that can indicate bad faith is going on. If you have recently filed an insurance claim, keep an eye out for these indicators. If you believe that any of the following or a related circumstance is grounds for a lawsuit, then don't hesitate to contact our firm.
