Losing a loved one is never easy, but knowing the cause of death could have been prevented is devastating. Trying to come to terms with the loss becomes more difficult as expenses arise, and the sudden loss of wages from the deceased can cause financial strain for surviving family members. If you’ve experienced the wrongful death of a spouse, immediate family member or child due to the negligence of others, we will help you recoup any expenses incurred, removing the financial burden from an already difficult situation.
Insurance Bad Faith
Insurance companies, by law, owe their policyholders a duty of good faith and fair dealing. The law of providing clients with honesty and fairness is important enough to include in their contracts, so when this agreement is violated, the policyholder has a right to sue on a breach of contract claim. Violations can include if the company delays handling the claim, inadequately investigates a claim, refuses a reasonable settlement offer, and more. If you have been treated unfairly by your insurance company, we will work to get you the settlement you deserve so you can move forward with your life.
