New York Insurance Bad Faith Claim Lawyer

Insurance Bad Faith Claim LawyerIt is unfortunate that during natural disasters or after a covered accident, when individuals need their insurance companies the most, they fall victim to insurance bad faith. You always paid your premiums on time. You never missed a payment. You basically did whatever your insurance company instructed you to do in the hopes that when you needed their help in the event of a covered accident they would provide you with the full benefits that you are entitled to under the terms of your contract. When your insurance company fails to do this, you may be entitled to file a bad faith claim against them.

Bad faith insurance claims are complicated and involve complex issues. In order to get the results that you deserve, you need to hire a law firm that knows what they are doing. At Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C., we build upon our years of experience and resources to deal with insurance companies and bad faith claims. Our experienced and compassionate lawyers in New York treat each client with the dedication and respect they deserve in obtaining the benefits they are entitled to.

What Is Insurance Bad Faith?

Insurance policies are legally binding contracts between the insurance company and the insured. As the policyholder, you pay a premium in exchange for the your insurance company to indemnify and defend you when a covered event occurs. When the insurance company fails to honor the terms of your policy and contract, you may have a claim for insurance bad faith.

You may be entitled to pursue an insurance bad faith claim if the insurance company has engaged in any of the following actions:

  • Denied your claim completely
  • Required unreasonable and unnecessary information from you
  • Made repeated requests for information that unnecessarily prolonged the claim process
  • Failed to make a reasonable settlement offer within a reasonable period of time after liability has been accepted
  • Denied paying out on a claim prior to conducting reasonable investigation in the facts
  • Compelled or effectively forced you to commence litigation to collect amounts due under an insurance policy
  • Failed to accept or deny a claim within a reasonable amount of time after the claim has been filed

If you believe that your insurance company has engaged in conduct that is not right or has denied you the coverage or due diligence that you deserve under the terms of your policy or contract, you should immediately consult with an attorney as you may entitled to file a bad faith claim to seek compensation. Filing a bad faith claim may entitle you to compensation for the amount due under the policy and any consequential damages you have suffered as a result of the denial of the policy.

Bad Faith Litigation

When you hire the legal team at Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C., we will help you with the following pertaining to your insurance bad faith claim:

  • Identifying the intentional or negligent errors and mistakes made by the insurance company that denied your claim
