Pursuing Your Rights When An Insurer Fails To Deliver
As a business owner, you responsibly pay your monthly insurance premiums to protect your business from the unexpected. When the time comes for you to utilize your insurance policy for its intended purpose, you may need to consider your legal options when your insurer acts in bad faith.
At The Law Offices of W. Dan Mahoney, P.C., I understand the inner workings of insurance companies and the quest of many to prioritize their bottom lines. I spent five years as an insurance company defense attorney. Now with over 30 years of experience in protecting the rights of responsible policyholders across Colorado, I can relieve you of some of the burden you bear in a dispute.
Insurance Companies Must Act In Good Faith
Your insurance policy is essentially a contract between you and your insurer. In exchange for your prompt payments, the company agrees to provide necessary compensation when the unexpected occurs. Insurance companies must act in good faith and fair dealing to their consumers. When they fail to do so, you may pursue legal action alleging bad faith.
Fighting Back Against Deceptive Practices
Your insurance policies may guard against property damage due to hail, storms, water, fire, theft or more. When your business suffers critical damage, you deserve to receive timely and fair compensation. Unfortunately, insurers find ways to deny valid claims, including by:
- Canceling the policy after you file your claim
- Failing to properly investigate the facts
- Settling the claim for an unfair amount
- Taking an unreasonably long time to investigate your claim
I can assist in holding the insurer accountable after such deceptive practices. Leveraging my background, I provide insightful guidance and pursue the financial relief you are due.
Representing Residential Property Owners
I also provide knowledgeable guidance to homeowners after an insurer acts in bad faith. You may incur significant expenses and inconveniences after storm damage to your home. When your insurer fails to act in good faith to compensate you for your valid claim, I can strategically represent you.
