Insurance Claims Attorney in Montgomery County, PA

Make A Successful Insurance Claim With Our Help

After an accident that left you injured and / or your property damaged, it's normal to file an insurance claim for compensation. While the majority of insurance claims are honored by the insurance companies, not all of these claims are redeemed as they should be. While insurers have a genuine and legitimate need to avoid wasteful spending, many insurers often do act in bad faith while attempting to save money on each and every claim. In the legal field, we refer to such incidents as matters of "insurance bad faith."

Common Ways Insurance Companies Act in Bad Faith:

  • Sometimes, insurers will deny meritorious claims in order to improve its bottom line.
  • Sometimes they will interpret policy language in a manner inconsistent with the interests of the insured, and the intent of the coverage purchased by the insured.
  • On occasion a carrier may use outright fraud to conceal and withhold rightful benefits that are due to the insured.

Laws have been established to protect policyholders and to force insurers to pay the benefits due. Courts will, when warranted, award the victims of insurance bad faith legal expenses and punitive damages.

If you have a valid claim that was denied or unnecessarily delayed, please don't wait to contact us at Mayerson Injury Law, P.C. Our dedicated team of insurance bad faith lawyers can help you seek the compensation you are rightfully due. Call now to speak with an attorney about your claim.

How can I prove that my insurance company is acting in bad faith?

Bad faith is any frivolous or unfounded refusal to pay proceeds of a policy. It is not necessary that the refusal to pay be fraudulent. However, the conduct of the insurer must be shown to be more than mere negligence or bad judgment. Although sometimes difficult to define in every case, our Courts have approved the following summary of the law on insurer bad faith to be read to a jury, by the trial judge, as an instruction on the law of insurer bad faith:

Under the law, an insurance company must act with the utmost good faith and fair dealing toward its insured, and treat the interests of its insured at the same level that it treats its own interests. This heightened duty arises because of the special relationship between an insurer and its insured and the nature of the insurance contract. 

An insurance company acts in bad faith if it:

  • does not have a reasonable basis for what it does, and
  • knows or recklessly disregards its lack of a reasonable basis.
