Bad Faith Insurance
(powerful music) – An insurance company that refuses to pay somebody when they reasonably ought to can be sued for bad faith. So in that case the insurance company doesn’t just have to pay the claim, they have to pay for all consequences of not paying for it and that gives them a strong incentive to pay the claim, but it doesn’t mean they always will.
And many times they’ll dispute the claims, or they’ll try to slow the claims down. The right time to hire an attorney is soon as you are aware that the insurance company is not gonna help you out, they’re not gonna take care of you, that’s when the first contact should be made.
I’ve been up in front of the Ninth Circuit on insurance bad faith cases. I have successfully prosecuted the largest insurance bad faith claim ever brought in the history of the United States for a particular kind of insurance.
I made a choice in life to represent individuals and small companies against big, giant powerful interests and it makes a difference in the world and that’s what’s important to me. (powerful music)
