Bad Faith Insurance Claims

We all use insurance companies in our daily lives, and trust that they will be there for us in the unfortunate event that we need their services or protection. That is what we pay for. Unfortunately, insurance companies do not always live up to our expectations, and, in the end, many seem to take advantage of our trust. Even though they are required by Pennsylvania law to pay claims properly and promptly, insurance companies often attempt to avoid responsibility. If you have an insurance claim which you believe has been inappropriately handled, you may have a bad faith claim against that insurance company. The Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C. represents the victims of bad faith insurance, and makes them pay what they owe, and then some. Call today to schedule a free consultation, and meet with one of our Personal Injury Attorneys.

What Constitutes a Bad Faith Action by an Insurance Company?

Insurance companies are required to pay claims in both a proper and prompt manner. When they avoid doing so by discounting, delaying, or wrongfully denying payment of claims, they may very well be in violation of the law. Those insured by these companies depend on them to act fairly and in good faith. Insurance companies owe the insured a high standard of care and fair dealing, which they may fail to meet through any of the following:

  • Unreasonable delay in paying a valid claim
  • Denial of a valid claim
  • Refusal to pay insurance benefits
  • Termination of an insurance policy after a claim has been made
  • Refusal to adequately defend a policyholder who is being sued
  • Settling a claim for much less than it is worth

If you have been the victim of such an action, call The Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C. to represent you in your claim against the insurance company. Insurance companies need to be held liable for the harm they cause, and the money they have denied you. Let us fight for you, and force the insurance companies to pay you what you are owed.
