Bad Faith Insurance Practices and Insurance Dispute Lawyers San Antonio Texas

Bad Faith Insurance Practices & Insurance Disputes

There are many reasons why people buy insurance, and when an accident occurs, people expect their insurance companies to be there to assist them. However, that is not always what happens. Insurance companies are businesses, and their main concern is their bottom line. This means that, in many cases, insurance companies do not do what they are contractually obligated to do, and they will often act in bad faith in order to protect their bottom line.

What Is Insurance Bad Faith?

“Bad Faith” is a legal term that means that an insurance company has acted unfairly or unreasonably in denying the payment of a claim, or in the fulfillment of duties owed to an insured party. This includes, for example, denying, delaying payment on, or underpaying a claim which was rightfully owed to the insured.

In many cases, it is very difficult to prove a “bad faith” claim against an insurance company, and those who seek to do so face a barricade of insurance defense attorneys who will place many obstacles in the path of insured parties. For this reason, having an experienced attorney on your side is essential.

The Single MOST Important Piece of Information You MUST KNOW!

If there is ONE principle that is important for you to understand it is this: You can’t trust insurance companies to do the right thing. This is why negotiating with an insurance company on your own will usually result in a settlement that is much lower than what you deserve. When dealing with insurance companies, having an experienced attorney on your side will probably increase a settlement by thousands of dollars.

Contrary to the multitude of insurance company TV commercials that may try to convince you that you are “in good hands,” nothing could be farther from the truth. Insurance companies are in business to make money - being fair to you is the LAST THING on their mind, and you will always take a back seat to their profits. If you believe that you are in their “good hands” and that they will be “fast, fair and friendly” to you after you have been injured – I’m sorry to tell you, you are sorely mistaken. Hopefully this is a lesson you won’t have to learn the hard way!
