Insurance Bad Faith Claim
When you get into a car accident in Austin, chances are you will be communicating with your insurance company frequently during the immediate aftermath. It is absolutely essential in these circumstances that the insurance companies provide you with the full amount of compensation for your damages.
“Insurance bad faith” is a legal term used to describe insurance companies that participate in illegal practices in attempt to cut policy holders short. If an insurance company is found to have participated in a bad faith practice, the plaintiff in a case can recover an amount that is more than the policy claim was actually worth in the first place.
Bad faith assumes that there is a “good faith” that insurance companies need to practice. This good faith is assumed, because insurance companies have a legal duty to those who hold their policies. Insurance companies are responsible for investigating the accident and making an accurate determination of the amount of damages that a policy holder can recover. They must then pay that amount. The amount is not limited to the damage to vehicle but may also include medical expenses. If you were injured in a car accident and believe you are getting cheated out of the money that you deserve then please don’t hesitate to contact our firm.
