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.
Contact us today for a consultation and to learn whether you have a case:
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
Don’t settle for anything less than the full value of your insurance
claim. Years ago, we used to represent insurance companies—we don’t
anymore but it gave our firm first-hand experience navigating the claims
handling and internal operations of insurance companies. We understand
the complexities of policy language and the nuances of insurance contract
interpretation. Our Sherman Oaks lawyers serve clients throughout Los
Angeles and Southern California.
