In many cases, an insurance provider will agree to pay straightforward claims. But if the claim is for a major expense or there is even the slightest basis on which a theory of denial is plausible, insurance companies may deny coverage.
When a lawyer gets involved, insurance companies often become more reasonable. However, even in cases where an insurance policyholder has a lawyer, insurance providers may still deny coverage. At that point, the insurance policyholder needs an experienced trial lawyer who can pursue damages for insurance bad faith.
By law, insurance providers are required to pay benefits they have promised to pay. When an insurance provider intentionally denies a claim that they should obviously cover or delays coverage unnecessarily, they may be held liable through a civil lawsuit sometimes referred to as an insurance bad faith claim. A plaintiff who prevails in an insurance bad faith claim may receive damages in the amount of the insurance coverage and may even obtain additional monetary damages for unnecessary delay or unreasonable denial of an insurance claim.
