Huntsville Bad Faith Insurance Attorneys Protect You From Dishonesty And Fraud

We fight insurers that take advantage of policyholders

Have you recently made a claim with your insurance company, only to encounter excuses and delays instead receiving the benefit you need? Was the payment they offered far less than what you actually need to settle your claim—or was your claim wrongly denied altogether? An insurance policy is a contract, and when a policyholder makes a legitimate claim covered under that policy, Alabama law requires insurance companies to act in good faith when both investigating and settling that claim. Failure to follow this requirement to do is considered a breach of this duty, and may even rise to the level of insurance fraud.

If you have made a claim with your insurance company and feel that your claim has been unreasonably delayed or denied, our dedicated Huntsville bad faith insurance attorneys at Watson McKinney LLP are ready to fight for your rights as an insured party, and help you receive the insurance payments to which you are entitled.

What is bad faith insurance?

An insurance company can be found to have acted in bad faith when:

  • It denies or delays payment of a claim

  • It fails to provide to the policyholder a legitimate basis for denying or delaying payment of a claim

  • It attempts to settle a claim with an unreasonably insufficient award

  • It fails to investigate the circumstances of a claim

  • It intentionally engages in deception, acts unfairly, attempts to enforce an intentionally ambiguous policy clause, or otherwise breaches the insurance contract

Alabama law can hold an insurance company accountable when such unscrupulous activities take place.

How can I challenge my insurance company?

Some insurance companies have developed strategies in their handling of claims which are intended not to help you after you suffer property loss or medical expenses, but to maximize their profits. These strategies tend to count upon a gullible policyholder to consent to an unfavorable settlement.  However, as a policyholder, you have the right to challenge your insurance company in when it wrongfully denies or delays providing you with any of the benefits to which you are entitled under that policy.

Our Huntsville bad faith insurance attorneys, knowledgeable about the methods and strategies commonly implemented by insurance companies, aggressively go after insurance companies on your behalf. If an insurance company has dishonestly breached your policy agreement with them, we provide tenacious advocacy.
