Fighting Back Against Bad Faith Insurance Tactics
When you sign up and pay for an insurance policy, you reasonably expect that your insurance will provide the help and compensation you need after an accident or property damage. However, when your insurer fails to investigate and pay out your claim in good faith, you have legal options.
At Zar Law Firm, our bad faith insurance claim attorneys have over 30 years of combined experience representing clients throughout the Houston area. As experienced litigators, we know how to build a strong case on your behalf to help you obtain the compensation you need.
You Can Trust Us To Advocate For Your Interests
After a house fire, flood, natural disaster or accident, your financial future may depend on your insurance company following through and paying you the compensation you need. Insurance companies owe a duty to their clients to follow the terms of their policies and Texas state insurance laws. Under state law, insurance companies must investigate claims to determine validity and pay the compensation owed. When an insurer fails this duty, you can file a bad faith insurance claim.
A bad faith insurance claim can go beyond underpaying you for your claim, bad faith tactics may include:
- Delaying a claim with no justification
- Failing to respond to communications
- Denying a claim without an investigation
- Failing to handle your claim in a reasonable time frame or using procedural delays
- Refusing to participate in good faith negotiations
When insurers use bad faith tactics, their goal is to outright deny your claim, wait until it is too late for you to recover, have you drop your claim or pressure you into accepting a lower settlement. If you feel your insurer is acting in bad faith, our attorneys at Zar Law Firm will thoroughly examine your claim to help you determine your next steps. If you have a valid claim, we will help you file a lawsuit and we will negotiate or litigate your case against your insurer.
