Insurance Disputes Demand an Experienced Colorado Personal Injury Lawyer
When an insurance company refuses to compensate you or your family for a personal injury that wasn’t your fault, you need to take strong legal action. Insurance companies will probably try to intimidate you. Or perhaps they’ll claim they can’t offer more money. Either way, you shouldn’t have to suffer financially because of someone else’s reckless behavior.
At Bell & Pollock, our attorneys take a tough stance against insurance companies. Their scare tactics do not intimidate us. We know how to negotiate with them, and we know how to get our clients the compensation they rightfully deserve. We will not rest until justice is served. We fight especially hard against insurance companies that are not dealing fairly with injury victims. This practice is known as “bad faith,” and it’s against the law.
Bad faith insurance is a legal term used to describe insurance companies that knowingly try to deceive clients or behave in an unethical manner. For example, if you’re injured in an auto accident caused by another driver and an insurance company refuses to pay for your injuries, you may have grounds to file a bad faith lawsuit in Colorado.
