Atlanta Insurance Claim Lawyer
Representing clients with bad faith insurance claims
Insurance exists to provide people with protection during unexpected life events such as vehicle accidents, natural disasters, personal injury, or sudden disability. When a Georgia insurance company acts dishonestly and intentionally fails to fulfill legal or contractual obligations set forth in the policy, the insured may have a claim for bad faith. Bad faith claims may involve any type of insurance policy including life, health, property, vehicle, and disability.
Insurance companies are obliged to act fairly and put the interests of the insured above their own. If you believe an insurance company acted in bad faith, contact the Atlanta bad faith lawyers at the law offices of Kenneth S. Nugent, P.C., or any of the firm’s eight offices throughout Georgia.
When insurance companies fail to honor policy agreements
Not every denial of insurance benefits constitutes the basis for a bad faith claim. Some claim disputes or denials may simply be a case of breach of contract. To prove a case of insurance bad faith, the skilled Atlanta insurance lawyers of Kenneth S. Nugent P.C. must establish that the insurance company acted in an unreasonable manner, disregarding their part of the policy agreement by denying or delaying claims for invalid reasons.
Some examples of bad faith actions by Georgia insurers include:
- Improperly or inadequately investigating a claim
- Denying a valid claim
- Delaying investigation of a claim or payments due
- Offering less money than a claim is worth
- Refusing to settle a claim
- Harassing the insured during a claim investigation
To properly assess if your situation constitutes a bad faith claim, it is best to consult with an experienced Atlanta insurance lawyer such as those at Kenneth S. Nugent P.C.
Our experienced insurance lawyers in Atlanta can help
Atlanta bad faith insurance lawyers understand complex insurance policies. A lawyer can review your policy to determine exactly what is covered and how claims should be handled. If an insurance company breaks the law by acting unreasonably and failing to adhere to the rules set forth in the policy, the insured may seek compensation beyond what is owed under the policy. Ken Nugent offers you a free consultation to determine if you have a case.
Oftentimes, once the insurance company is threatened with the possibility of a lawsuit, representatives may suddenly agree to pay an otherwise denied or delayed claim. However, this is not always the case. Our highly qualified insurance lawyers in Atlanta are not afraid to take the big insurance companies to court to request proper compensation for damages such as emotional suffering and economic losses stemming from the insurance company’s unreasonable actions.
