LeBaron & Jensen Holds Insurance Providers Accountable
Insurance claims are, more often than not, incredibly convoluted, making it nearly impossible to navigate the system alone. After an accident, victims and their families can often face serious financial difficulties on top of the struggle to recover and rebuild their lives. LeBaron & Jensen is here to help.
At LeBaron & Jensen, our attorneys and paralegal staff have decades of combined experience representing victims and negotiating with insurance providers on their behalf to get fair settlements. Our ability to secure fair compensation for our clients goes beyond our skill and dedication alone, as legal representation pays for itself when dealing with insurance providers. That is to say that industry studies have shown that claimants with legal representation get settlements 3.5 times those given to claimants without. In short, obtaining legal representation is the best way to prevent being victimized by insurance bad faith and ensure you get the compensation you deserve. We can review your case for FREE to establish representation and protect your interests or to determine if you have already been victimized by your insurance provider acting in bad faith in relation to your claim. We hold providers accountable for their promises to you, the insured.
What is Bad Faith?
Insurance providers work to protect their interests and, thereby, those of their shareholders. As a result, insurance providers will work to pay as little financial compensation as possible to their policyholders when a claim is filed. If your insurance provider acts in an unreasonable or belligerent manner, you may be entitled to additional punitive damages if your case progresses to the courts. This “bad faith” can include:
- Excessive delays in processing claims
- Poorly executed investigation
- Refusing to defend your lawsuit
- Threatening the insured person(s)
- Unreasonable settlement offers, or refusal to offer reasonable compensation
- Unreasonable execution or interpretation of policies.
What to Do If You Believe Your Insurance Provider Is Acting in Bad Faith
If you believe your insurance provider has acted in bad faith when reviewing and negotiating your claim, it’s important to obtain experienced legal representation as soon as possible. While insurance providers want to pay as little as possible, they also want to avoid costly litigation. Retaining a skilled personal injury attorney demonstrates that, if necessary, the claimant and their legal counsel are prepared to fight for fair compensation. This being said, 99% of personal injury claims are settled outside of court when an accident attorney is involved. So, remember, if your insurance provider appears to be acting in bad faith:
- Provide no detailed statements or admissions of fault for your accident
- Accept no unreasonable or unequitable settlement offers
- Contact an attorney to get the settlement you deserve
