Insurance Bad Faith

The purchase of insurance serves a necessary and important role in our society. As consumers, we rely on insurance to provide us with the peace of mind that we are or will be protected in times of need. However, when insurance companies fail to follow the rules, they must be held accountable. When schemes designed to increase profits take the place of an insurance company’s duty to deal fairly and in good faith with its policyholders, they have to be punished.

Punitive damages are designed to punish an insurance company for reckless, malicious and intentional bad faith conduct. Thus, punitive damages serve as a deterrent to insurance companies by taking away their ill-gotten gains. Comparatively, the very real threat of being punished when caught for bad faith conduct results in less lawsuits and fewer victims.

Personal Injury & Medical Malpractice

Severe personal injuries or death brought about by the negligence or medical malpractice of an individual or corporation are compensable. Thus, if you have suffered painful injuries, incurred significant medical expenses, lost the physical or mental ability to work, and/or received permanent injuries, you are entitled to be compensated for these damages. Likewise, if your spouse or family member died as a result of an individual or corporation’s negligence or medical negligence, the law recognizes your right to receive compensation.
