San Francisco Bay Area Insurance Coverage Attorney
Why You Need an Insurance Attorney
Insurance company claims adjusters are trained professionals who work diligently in protecting the company profit line, usually by intense claim scrutiny. This is especially true of the big box insurers with national exposure and commercial advertising campaign programs. Not only are their rates typically higher, but they are more difficult at claim time in many instances because their standard claim processing company policy could be considered bad faith. Having your own insurance coverage legal team means you will have a professional negotiator as well fighting for whole compensation and willing to take legal action.
Bad Faith Insurance Companies
Insurance adjusters commonly offer low-ball quick settlements to claimants when they think it will eliminate the possibility of dealing with a lawyer, often with a “take it or leave it” informal rider. If not taken, the company then stalls the claim trying to take advantage of the claimant’s personal situation. This could easily be determined as bad faith by the court, and an experienced San Francisco Bay area insurance coverage attorney will know how to maximize any denied claim through a potential additional bad faith lawsuit. Insurance companies can be sued for egregious behavior in settling claims when an attorney can prove the bad faith claim in court. This is a legal situation that all insurance companies want to avoid, but an aggressive attorney can keep them honest.
