The Law Allows You To Seek Financial Compensation
No matter the particular type of insurance coverage you have, your insurance company is supposed to work in your best interests. If your insurance company is not providing you with the benefits for which you paid in advance, the law provides a remedy. It entitles you to not only your policy benefits, but also compensation for any economic damages.
You can also seek money to make up for the grief and frustration you have suffered because of the wrongly denied claim.
Punitive Damages May Turn A $3,000 Case Into A $300,000 One
Sometimes claims involving relatively small amounts of benefits can end up being very significant cases. If an insurance company is cheating one of its own policyholders, it may be held liable for punitive damages.
Punitive damages are awarded against an insurance company as a punishment and as an example to other companies. It is the court’s way of motivating the companies to act honestly and properly pay policyholders the benefits they have promised.
In the past, our attorneys have successfully collected six-figures claims for many clients who had four-figure claims. In one case, we obtained a $10 million jury verdict for a $7,500 claim*. This happened because we were able to prove that thousands of other policyholders had also been cheated. The jury chose to punish the insurance company for its bad faith by awarding our client more than 1,300 times what was originally owed.

If you or your business has been denied insurance coverage, it can be easy to just assume that your insurance company has denied your coverage for a good reason, but this is not always the case. In some instances, the denial could be unfair or unlawful. In other circumstances, the denial could be questionable.
