Insurance Bad Faith

Los Angeles Insurance Bad Faith Attorney

Determining Your Rights & Pursuing Damages

Insurance is meant to protect you and your home from financial devastation in the event of an unfortunate and potentially devastating occurrence. Policyholders pay a premium every month with the assumption that the insurance coverage will be there to provide them with compensation when it’s needed. Bad faith on the part of an insurer can occur when the insurer refuses to honor legitimate claims or fails to provide the full payment in a timely fashion.

If you believe that your insurer has withheld benefits or treated you unfairly, you may have legal options available to you. Schimmel & Parks, APLC can help you determine your potential rights and claims as an insured, as well as damages you may be eligible for due to the unreasonable or fraudulent practices of your insurer.

Homeowners can file insurance bad faith claims when the insurer:

  • Fails to promptly and thoroughly investigate and pay on a property insurance claim
  • Uses unreasonable interpretations of insurance policy language
  • Unreasonably refuses to defend or settle a case if you are being sued
  • Underpays claims/refuses to offer full compensation
