Insurance Fraud and Bad Faith
Insurance companies, by law, are required to act in good faith when underwriting insurance policies and handling policyholders' claims. When an insurance company fails to abide by the laws governing insurance, they are said to be acting in "bad faith" or in the worst cases, committing insurance fraud. Either provides grounds for litigation.
Prince, Glover & Hayes has carved a special niche in the complex area of Insurance Fraud and Bad Faith and is a West Alabama leader in representing clients who are victims of unfair settlement or wrongfully denied claims. We never represent insurance companies and only represent individuals who have been treated unfairly by their insurance carriers.
Through years of investigating insurance company practices, we have discovered:
- The wrongful denial or unfair settlement of claims is commonplace.
- There is actual "boardroom approval" of fraud designed to mislead consumers while increasing the profits of large insurance companies.
- Insurance companies have either denied coverage or charged higher premiums for African Americans, based solely on the fact that they are African Americans.
When we win an insurance case, a claimant may receive compensation for denied policy benefits as well as for damages and attorney fees. In extreme instances, the court may award punitive damages against the insurance company for acting in bad faith or committing insurance fraud.
At Prince, Glover & Hayes, we have the knowledge to effectively deal with all aspects of insurance cases- interpreting policies, medical records, and property evaluations, as well as corresponding with insurance agents. Our experience and resources allow us to challenge even the most prominent of insurance companies.
If you think you may have been the victim of insurance fraud or bad faith, our attorneys offer a free consultation to discuss your concerns. Please call us at 1-888-804-1196 to arrange an appointment.
Prince Glover & Hayes Law does not offer any guarantee of case results. The cases mentioned in this site are illustrative of the array of matters handled by the firm involving various areas of personal injury law. In many of the verdicts listed, plaintiffs either settled or obtained a modified award. These illustrations, though based upon cases handled by this office, are representative only and should not be viewed as an assurance of a particular result. Each case must stand on its own facts and circumstances.
These recoveries are not an indication of future results. Every case is different, and regardless of what friends, family, or other individuals may say about what a case is worth, each case must be evaluated on its own facts and circumstances as they apply to the law.
The valuation of a case depends on the facts, the injuries, the jurisdiction, the venue, the witnesses, the parties, and the testimony, among other factors. Furthermore, no representation is made that the quality of the legal services to be performed is greater than the quality of legal services performed by other lawyers.
