Capable Springfield Lawyer Represents Policyholders in Insurance Coverage Disputes

Holding carriers accountable when they unreasonably refuse to cover claims

You buy insurance for peace of mind, so when you suffer an injury, illness or property damage, you have a right to expect your losses are covered. Unfortunately, insurance companies don’t always put your interests first. At the Law Offices of Harold I. Resnic, we do. We know how frustrating disputes with insurance companies can be, and we are dedicated to helping you get the insurance coverage you paid for.

How insurance companies think

Insurance companies are businesses, so their bottom line is making money. They don’t want to pay for anything they don’t have to. So, an insurance company will not pay for anything not specified by the insurance policy, which in essence is a contract between the company and you, the policyholder. Each policy is different, offering different levels of coverage, deductibles and exclusions (situations it will not cover).

Our firm analyzes and interprets your insurance policy and examines the facts and evidence surrounding your claim. We negotiate with your insurer, or the insurer of the person who caused your personal injury or property damage, to get you the payments you deserve. If a claim cannot be resolved the way we think it should, we will take your case to court to obtain payment. We handle insurance claims related to every kind of insurance policy, from auto, home and commercial to life, medical and disability.

We focus our insurance practice on:

  • Insurance litigation and appeals
  • Denied coverage
  • Failure to pay in full
  • Failure to defend against third-party claims

Pursuing insurance companies for bad faith damages

Insurers acting in good faith will pay claims as provided under the terms of their policies. When insurers intentionally mishandle, deny or delay claim payments or refuse to defend a client, their actions may constitute insurance bad faith. Common insurance bad faith conduct includes:

  • Misrepresenting facts or policy provisions
  • Failing to act in a timely manner
  • Failing to investigate a claim
  • Failing to settle when coverage is reasonably clear
  • Failing to give a timely and adequate explanation of a coverage decision

We have been handling clients’ insurance claims since 1977. We’ve seen every type of insurance company tactic and have held companies accountable when they crossed the line.  A bad faith insurance lawsuit may provide full coverage for your claim and additional damages for the insurer’s misconduct.
