Bad Faith Actions by Insurance Companies

There is an old saying that goes along the lines that insurance is a very good idea until you really need it. Many of us have paid for insurance throughout our adult lives. Fortunately, we commonly don't need to take advantage of what our insurance policies appear to offer us. A hit and run, a workplace injury, a pedestrian accident or other occurrences can instantly change all that.

Within the limits of your policy, an insurance company has a contractual agreement to cover you in case of accident, injury or other incidents. If your insurance company denies or unreasonably delays a payment or does not settle your claim as given in your policy, they are acting in "bad faith."

An insurance company can act in bad faith so that they do not have to pay for your pain and suffering in a prompt and fair manner, or otherwise accept liability for your losses. If you feel this has occurred or is happening to you now, seek the help of a Kansas City insurance claim lawyer who is experienced in insurance company bad faith actions.

Our Goals for Your Case

At Meyerkord, Russell & Hergott, we use our knowledge and experience in negotiation towards getting proper compensation for our clients. When negotiation cannot produce the desired result, we are prepared to go to trial to obtain the best possible outcome. Our goal is to get the benefits you deserve for your claim under the guidelines laid out in your policy. In some cases, damages for emotional distress can be obtained. Punitive damages can be sought when appropriate and attorney fees may be paid as part of the final agreement.

Instances of bad faith can make a person a victim twice over. Once in the initial accident and secondly when the insurance company fails to properly pay. The insurance companies will sometimes offer a seemingly good settlement, knowing that it is much less than they should pay. They are represented by attorneys who are very professional at what they do. We want you to have equally professional representation, working to uphold your rights.

If your insurance company is not paying what they owe you, immediately contact our firm to work on your behalf.
