A Bad Faith Claim Against Your Car Insurance Requires Attention to Detail
We have all had experiences with insurance companies refusing to fulfill their obligations to provide the benefits that we purchased from them. When the failure to fulfill their obligations becomes significant and impacts your rights and benefits, you may have a bad faith claim against the car insurance company. If you and your attorney do not document the actions and inactions of the insurance company and do not require the insurance company to fulfill their obligations, then it becomes very hard to proceed with a bad faith claim. The Attorneys at Rankin & Gregory begin documenting the actions and inactions of the insurance company from the very beginning of the case. This attention to detail becomes very important when a bad faith claim is filed in Court. For instance, Lancaster County based Judge Buckwalter recently kicked out a car accident victim’s personal injury case based on bad faith because the attorney did not provide the appropriate amount of proof that the insurance company was behaving badly. See Mozzo v. Progressive Insurance, No. 14-5752 (E.D. Pa. January 5, 2015 Buckwalter, S.J.).
Attorney Chad Rankin’s experience fighting bad faith claims coupled with Attorney William Gregory’s knowledge of the inner workings of insurance companies provide a team designed to succeed for their clients who, after being injured in car accidents, were treated unfairly by insurance companies who refuse to provide the purchased benefits. If the insurance company is starting to make it hard to get the benefits that you purchased, call Rankin & Gregory immediately. Failure to do so, could make it hard to make the car insurance company live up to its obligations.
