California Personal Injury Attorney Exposed Insurer Bad Faith
Posted on Oct 13, 2011
Insurance companies are obligated to engage in fair practices when processing the claims of their insured. Given that policyholders tend only to contact their insurers during times of tragedy or calamity, this expectation of fairness is especially high, making acts of bad faith all the more egregious.
Recently, a prominent, multi-billion dollar insurance company attempted to withhold its insured’s full policy limit from him after an auto accident resulting in serious injuries. Ultimately, a California personal injury attorney not only obtained a sum larger than the policy but also discovered the deceptive practices the insurer employed in its effort to evade paying its insured. A settlement for bad faith was quickly reached.
