Breach Of Contract/Bad Faith

Insurance Policies Should Be Reliable

You purchased an insurance policy for protection in the event of a major illness, accident or extended disability, or damage to your car or your home. You faithfully paid the monthly premiums. But when you filed a claim, the insurance provider denied payment.

If the insurer wrongfully denied a legitimate claim, you may have grounds for a lawsuit to force the insurance company to pay the claim and possibly collect additional damages for bad faith insurance denial.

Long-Term Disability Benefits Wrongfully Denied?

At Law Office of P. Randall Noah, our special area of focus is long-term disability insurance. We understand the specificities of insurance law, including the fact that you can sue for breach of contract/bad faith only if you privately purchased your disability policy or if your policy is not governed by ERISA. If your coverage was obtained through an employer-sponsored (ERISA) plan, you may have alternative options that we can present.

We aim to hold insurers accountable for unfair denials of not only disability insurance, but also other types of insurance policies, including:

  • Life insurance
  • Auto insurance
  • Homeowner insurance

Our attorney will review your policy and contact the insurer to urge it to pay the claim. If the insurer stands by its denial, we may file suit in state court.

The insurer may settle the claim once litigation is threatened or a lawsuit is actually filed. If not, we are prepared to go to trial to advocate for your interests.
