Denver personal injury lawyers: bad faith claims
If you have had an insurance claim denied, or are in a coverage dispute with your own insurance company, you may be working with an insurance provider that is dealing in bad faith. Many insurance companies have an unwritten policy of the three Ds: delay, deny and defend. Every year, thousands of honest insurance policy holders are denied payments for valid claims, even after paying their insurance premiums for years.
The Denver injury lawyers at Bell & Pollock, P.C. have been helping people obtain money damages for legitimate insurance claims since 1984. We know the strategies that insurance companies use to protect their profit margins. We handle most insurance dispute litigation cases on contingency. That means that you will pay only a percentage of what you recover for damages. If you do not recover money in a settlement or jury award, you will not pay attorney fees. In many cases, insurance companies found guilty of bad faith practices must also pay punitive damages, including the claimant's legal fees. Unfortunately, it often takes a successful lawsuit to make some insurance companies deal honestly with their customers.
Uninsured and underinsured claims
Most automobile insurance policies provide uninsured and underinsured coverage. This means that if the owner (or a passenger) of the insured automobile is injured by a negligent driver of another vehicle who does not have liability insurance, or who does not have enough insurance to cover the injured person’s damages, then the insured vehicle’s insurance company will pay the actual or excess damages. Some insurance companies tend to minimize the severity of their own customer’s injuries. In such cases, filing a collision or injury claim with your own insurance company is the only means of obtaining recovery for your injuries, damages, and losses.
