If you submitted a valid claim to your insurance company and it was wrongfully denied, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit to recover the damages you are entitled to receive. Your automobile, homeowners, or life insurance policy is a legally binding contract between you and your insurance carrier. This document specifies exactly what financial compensation you are eligible to claim, which perils or losses are covered, the conditions which must be met for you to pursue financial compensation, and other relevant details. If you are a resident of Monongalia, Tyler, Wetzel, Hancock, Ohio, Brooke, or Marshall County, West Virginia involved in a dispute over your rightful insurance claim, contact Angotti & Straface Attorneys at Law immediately.
I Paid My Premium. Why Am I Having So Much Trouble Collecting for My Claim?
In some cases, it can be difficult for a policyholder to collect the compensation that was agreed upon by the insurance carrier despite paying premiums on time and doing everything correctly. This can be especially true when acting alone, for whatever reason.
We actually see this fairly often. We like to refer to this as industrial-strength greed – and we don’t like to see it. Sometimes, an insurer may simply need to be firmly reminded of their legal duties. That makes it easier for everyone.
We may encounter an insurer that has be misguided by their legal counsel or who, perplexingly, seems to prefer to be held to the flame. Other times, an insurance company may elect to accrue additional liability for damages and losses caused by their actions or incur punitive penalties that may be far in excess of the total value of the claim. Sometimes, we wonder why they are even in that specific business.
Although some of these actions may be made in poor judgment, rest assured that illegal actions remain illegal. Whether your insurer’s actions were intentional or not, if you were betrayed and suffered financial damage as a result, our Insurance Dispute Team stands ready to provide effective legal representation.
What Type of Legal Action Can I Take Against My Devious Insurer?
Angotti & Straface Attorneys at Law handles a broad range of legal actions for policyholders facing unjust treatment from their insurers. Aside from pursuing recovery for your valid insurance claim, we are able to hold insurance agents accountable for lying to you or others about your coverage, your cooperation and/or the timeliness of which you filed your claim, misrepresenting your coverage, delaying their response to your inquiries and/or the processing of your claim, offering you less than the true value of your claim, and many other forms of inappropriate conduct that caused you to experience a financial loss.
