· Insurance Disputes Representing Insureds
Insurance companies routinely deny claims, delay claims and otherwise act in bad faith. You pay your insurance premiums expecting your insurance company to provide coverage in the event of an accident, illness, death or other matter. If you believe your insurance company is now refusing to comply with the terms of its agreement with you, you may have a claim.
