Insurance Law: Why You Should Always Hire a Legal Professional

In a bad faith insurance case, a person sues their own insurance company for not providing adequate coverage under their plan. When someone buys an insurance plan, they expect their provider to fulfill the obligations of their agreement. However, this doesn’t always happen. Often, insurance companies try to shirk their financial obligations to their clients. These companies have nearly unlimited resources, experience, and manpower when compared to their clients. Because of this, they can often strongarm their clients into settling a lower amount of financial compensation than they should.

Bad Faith Insurance Claims Don’t Have to Ruin Your Life

If your insurance company is trying to pay you less than you think they owe, there is an option. An attorney can help you file a bad faith lawsuit against your insurance company. When a client signs a contract with an insurance company, the provider is agreeing to maintain a standard of service for the client. If they fail to meet this standard, you and your lawyer can file a suit to collect the financial restitution you deserve.

To succeed in a bad faith insurance claim, your lawyer will need to prove two things:

  • Your provider promised you benefits that they did not provide. Your lawyer needs to establish that your claim was valid as per your contract with your provider. Then, your lawyer needs to provide evidence that your insurance company denied your claim.
  • Your provider’s reason for denying your claim was unwarranted. To prove this, your lawyer needs to establish that your provider intentionally denied your claim and that the denial was unreasonable. In Illinois, a lawyer needs to prove that an insurance company’s actions were “vexatious and unreasonable,” not just negligent. A provider’s actions are not “vexatious and unreasonable” according to the state only if:
    • There is a dispute concerning the scope of the coverage
    • The provider maintains that its policy is legitimate
    • There’s a question regarding a legal or factual issue
    • The insurer’s legal position regards an unsettled legal issue

If your attorney can establish that your insurance company’s actions met these standards, you’ll be entitled to:

  • The amount of your claim
  • Attorney’s fees and other costs
  • An additional sum that’s either an extra 60 percent of your original claim amount or $60,000.
