Many insurance bad faith claims will proceed to court, but it is possible for some to be settled prior to being taken to court. Whether a case actually goes to court or not depends on the amount of evidence the policyholder has of bad faith on the insurance company’s behalf and the insurance company’s willingness to provide a settlement. If the settlement offered to the policyholder isn’t satisfactory, the case may continue past the initial stages of the lawsuit and move to litigation.
If you haven’t received adequate coverage from your insurance company after you have filed a claim, we may be able to help you pursue your legal options for obtaining this financial coverage.
