Insurance policies are meant to help policyholders during their times of financial need. Policyholders expect to receive the benefits of having these policies when the time comes. Our Madison insurance bad faith attorneys provide skilled legal representation to clients who have been the victim of a bad faith practice by an insurance company and are owed a fair settlement.

What Is Insurance Bad Faith?

Insurance bad faith is a tactic that an insurance company uses to avoid fulfilling its contractual obligations to a policyholder regarding valid claims. Policyholders may file a tort case when this occurs to seek compensation for the damages they experienced.

There are many tactics insurance companies use that could constitute acting in bad faith. Some examples of bad faith insurance practices could be:

  • Denying an insurance claim without providing a reason
  • Failing to promptly investigate the claim
  • Unreasonably delaying an insurance claim
  • Offering less money for an insurance claim than it is worth
  • Misrepresenting Wisconsin insurance law or insurance coverage

If you have been wrongfully denied an insurance claim, our insurance dispute attorneys will bring your claim to court to prove Wisconsin insurance laws were broken.

The Importance of Legal Representation for Insurance Bad Faith Cases

The insurance company should quickly process any claims you file for covered damages. These claims are necessary to cover property repair or replacement, medical payments for doctor visits or medical treatment, lost wages, and more. Our attorneys will step in to ensure the insurance company treats you fairly.

Hiring lawyers early in the game can prevent the insurance company from playing games and wrongfully denying or delaying your claim. Having an attorney often encourages the insurance company to step it up and offer a fair settlement much faster.
