If you look at the budget for any individual or family, you will see that insurance expenses take up a significant portion of it. People spend money on all different kinds of insurance coverage. Auto insurance, homeowner’s insurance, renter’s insurance, health insurance, disability insurance, and life insurance are just a handful of examples.
We pay for these policies to protect us in case something goes wrong. Hopefully, it never does, but if we ever need it, we want to know that we will be taken care of (“in good hands,” as Allstate claims).
Even though people pay tons of money for insurance premiums, insurance companies don’t always treat their insureds fairly. If you find yourself being mistreated by an insurance company, The Mahone Firm is here to help.
Bad Faith Insurance Claims
Insurers have a duty to adjust and pay claims in a timely manner. If they don’t, they can be sued for penalties and attorney’s fees under the Louisiana bad faith statutes (La. Rev. Stat. 22:1892 and La. Rev. Stat. 22:1973). This provides a strong incentive for insurance companies to do the right thing and can also give policyholders a way to receive additional compensation in their insurance claims.
Help Negotiating with Insurance Companies
The Mahone Firm can help with any type of insurance claims that you may need to make. Negotiating with insurance companies can be a tedious and time consuming process. This isn’t surprising when you remember that the insurance company’s goal is to pay as little as possible.
An insurance lawyer can help you prepare your claim, make sure that insurance company treats you fairly throughout the process, and help you get the most for your claim. If your claim has to be litigated, you will want an experienced business litigation attorney representing you.
