Bad Faith Insurance Claims: How An Attorney Can Help Hurricane Sandy Victims

New-York-Bad-Faith-Insurance-Claims-How-An-Attorney-Can-Help-Hurricane-Sandy-VictimsThousands of homeowners are rebuilding and repairing after Hurricane Sandy ravished New York and New Jersey and are relying on their insurance companies to pay their legitimate claims. Unfortunately, many policyholders will likely find themselves embroiled in a battle to receive the compensation that is rightfully theirs. When insurance companies deny, delay or offer settlements that are far less than reasonable, they are acting in bad faith – and must be held accountable for the promises they made to you.

Enforcing Your Insurance “Contract”

When you purchase insurance, you enter into a contract with the insurance company. They insure you for certain risks. You pay them costly premiums. It’s a contract that, when breached, entitles you to take legal action. Unfortunately, many policyholders don’t fight for their rights because they feel intimidated. After all, insurance companies generally have teams of claim adjusters and legal staff who will do whatever it takes to keep your premiums and pay out as little as possible – if nothing at all. That’s where a bad faith insurance lawyer can help.
