When insurance companies put their own interests ahead of the interests of their customers, it raises questions of “bad faith.”
For example, imagine you have been sued, and your insurance company provides an attorney to defend you. The total damages could exceed your insurance coverage. But then the other side puts an entirely reasonable offer on the table, and then imagine your insurance company refuses to pay it!
In that situation, it is important to get your own legal advice from another lawyer. If the insurance company is risking your money on a claim it could settle within policy limits, there are steps you can take to protect yourself.
We have experience negotiating “bad faith” and handling coverage litigation for people who have been wrongfully denied coverage. Please call us today if you live in Lee’s Summit or the Kansas City-area.
