Insurance Disputes / Bad Faith
Houston Insurance Attorney
As an individual or business owner, you likely pay large premiums for insurance. As a result, you expect your insurance company to act in good faith when you file a claim. Unfortunately, insurance companies often delay and deny paying claims. Sometimes, they even reject the validity of a claim without a legitimate reason or explanation.
Insurance policies are difficult to understand. With the language of their contracts and specific deadlines set, attempting to handle this sort of case on your own can lead to frustration and disappointment. These laws are complicated, so you will want to hire a local Houston insurance attorney to help you file an insurance dispute.
Disputes often arise about the amount due on a bill, the amount a company paid, or the denial of a claim. The law requires insurance companies to process claims quickly, but that does not always happen. Your insurance company cannot ask you to fill out unnecessary forms in an effort to delay the payment of a claim. If the insurance company has a legitimate reason to delay or deny your claim, they must explain the reasoning to you promptly.
