Insurance bad faith and breach of contract

Insurance companies are required to treat their policyholders fairly.  Unfortunately, insurance companies sometimes deny claims unfairly.  This often happens when a policyholder submits a claim to their insurer for uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage benefits.  Even though the policyholder has faithfully paid insurance premiums for years, when he or she submits a claim to his or her own insurance company the insurance company treats the policyholder like an enemy.

Insurance contracts often contain clauses the limit the time within which you have to make a claim against your insurance company.  If you believe that your insurance company has not treated your fairly, or has breached its insurance contract, call or email the attorneys at Mellowitz & Hanefeld.
