A torrent of insurance claims have poured into insurance companies in the Northeast in 2012 following the devastation of Hurricane Sandy and in early 2013 after a deadly swath of storms raked communities located mostly in the South, turning property and lives upside down. Storm victims count on insurance companies to help them in their harrowing time of loss.
The insurance companies are businesses. And businesses must make a profit, which is the American way. But there is nothing American, nothing fair, and nothing moral about an insurance company preying on claimants, who already have been victimized, because there is a conflict between profit and justice — and the insurer decided justice would lose.
When you must deal with an insurance company, the experienced bad faith insurance claims attorneys at Reich & Binstock can protect your rights to payment of the claims that you deserve. The firm specializes in bad faith insurance litigation and can try cases in any state.
In the past few years, we have represented thousands of plaintiffs throughout Texas against large insurance companies for denial and underpayment of insurance claims. Reich & Binstock often represents homeowners with first-party bad faith claims involving Hurricane Ike damage claims that have been mishandled or wrongfully denied.
Reich & Binstock also devotes significant resources in helping business owners, apartment property owners and churches resolve issues in getting the money they deserve for their hurricane and other property damages.
What are bad faith insurance practices?
Bad faith insurance is when the insurance company does not treat the claimant fairly:
- Denying a valid claim
- Unreasonably delaying payment
- Insurance company's adjuster, looking out for the company's interest instead of the victim's entitlement, under-valuing the adjustment
- Offering to settle with the claimant for less than the claim is worth
- Failing to pay a judgment against the claimant from a lawsuit that the insurance policy requires the insurance company to defend
There is no need to be cheated out of a just claim because of deceptive tricks of the insurance trade.
