How do you know your insurance company acted in bad faith?

When you purchased an insurance policy for your car, your home or your life, among others, you agreed to make periodic payments in exchange for the peace of mind that if you file a claim after an accident, injury or damage to your property, the insurance company would be there to provide you with financial assistance you need.

If you and your parent investigated the benefits of long-term care insurance, you may feel relieved to have that policy in place as your loved one's needs change.

Life insurance claim denials are rare but devastating

Death is something everyone must face but few like to think about. It is difficult to let your mind go to the possibilities that might end your life or the circumstances that might take you from your loved ones. However, if your spouse cared enough to consider these things and prepared for that moment by purchasing a life insurance policy to protect you, you may have felt comforted that, at the very least, your financial needs would be met during a difficult time.

When the earth moves but your insurance company won't

Whether man-made or from natural causes, earthquakes raise alarm and anxiety. For those who live in Oklahoma, the rumblings of earth are daily events.
