INSURANCE BAD FAITH ATTORNEY LOCATED IN BILOXI
Insurance is our safety net when things go wrong. We purchase insurance to plan for the worst case scenario and hope that we never end up in that scenario. When devastation happens, we look to our insurance company to provide us with the compensation we so desperately need during these times. Unfortunately, sometimes insurance companies do not provide you with the insurance coverage you thought you agreed to. In other instances, insurance companies cancel policies without notice. An insurance company’s unreasonable failure to perform is called insurance bad faith. Attorney Corban Gunn is an experienced insurance bad faith attorney.
Insurance Companies Are Businesses Looking to Maximize Profits
Like any other business, insurance companies are in the business of making money. When you have been injured in an accident or have filed another claim with your insurance company, your insurance company will sometimes deny coverage or try to negotiate your claim for less than it is worth. Examples of bad faith might include:
- Offering to settle your claim for an amount much less than the damages you sustained
- Offering to settle your claim for an amount without a reasonable relationship to your injuries and denial of giving reasons for this amount
- Making payments for claims but without specifying which coverage for the claims
- Advising insured not to seek advice of an attorney
- Cancellation of the policy as a result of making a claim
When you have been injured in an accident, you need your insurance company to be on your side. All insurance policies are contracts that require your insurance company to deal fairly with you in good faith. If your insurance company begins to seem more like your adversary rather than your champion, then it may be time to call an attorney.
