Representing Those Injured By An Insurance Company's Bad Faith
Under Pennsylvania law, insurance companies are required to willingly pay claims properly and promptly. When they discount, delay or deny payment of insurance claims, they may be violating the terms of their policies and the law. They must be held accountable for the harm they cause.
At Caroselli, Beachler & Coleman, L.L.C., our Philadelphia insurance bad faith lawyers represent the victims of personal injury who have also been wronged by their insurance companies. When we take your insurance bad faith case, we will keep in close contact with you, returning calls and emails as quickly as possible as we develop the best case strategy for you. Our goal is helping you achieve results. This means holding insurance companies responsible for their actions.
Insurance companies owe a duty of good faith and fair dealing to the people they insure. Insurers can violate this duty in several ways including:
- 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
When insurance companies commit any of these actions, you should seek the advice of your attorneys. At Caroselli, Beachler & Coleman, L.L.C., we will talk with you about your legal goals and determine a strategy that works best to achieve them.
We have achieved a history of success on behalf of clients whose insurance claims were delayed, denied or underpaid because insurance companies acted in bad faith. Our lawyers have the in-depth knowledge and experience necessary to help our clients in complex bad faith claims.
