Was Your Claim Denied in Bad Faith?

Unreasonable delays in payment, successive requests for information after you have answered their previous questions, or apparently arbitrary denial of benefits or claims are all signs of what is known as insurance bad faith. Too often, the company gambles that you will accept less than what you have coming to you if it makes the claims or benefit payment process difficult and complicated enough. In the meantime while your dispute is pending, the insurance company collects interest and investment income on the money it isn't paying you.

Not all denials of claims or benefits mean that the insurance company is cheating you. There are many legitimate bases for an insurer's questioning of your claim. When the subject of the dispute seems to shift with each round of information requests, however, or if the insurer's stated reasons for denying your claim seem less plausible the longer the dispute goes on, the case for a claim of insurance bad faith appears all the stronger.

At The McClellan Law Firm, we can work with you to identify possible claims against your insurer for bad faith in the handling, payment, or denial of life, health, or disability insurance claims. Our experience helps us spot the signs of bad faith; we can also work with you to identify with precision the losses that resulted from the breach of the insurer's commitment. In health coverage and disability benefits disputes, these losses can be substantial.

  • “We could not be happier with the McCllelan Law Firm team! My husband and I were referred to Craig McCllelan by one of his peers. We had a very sensitive medical malpractice case that we were hesitant to even pursue. Craig and his team sat down and walked us through the entire process giving us their honest opinion and options. We felt very comfortable with the process and completely relieved by the end of the first meeting, so we decided to proceed. It is three years later and we couldn't be happier that we did. Craig, Connor, and his team made the entire experience so easy and smooth. They were always available no matter how small our question or concern. I swear they work 24/7! And most importantly, we knew that they truly cared about us and the outcome. They fought for our family and have given us the piece of mind that our son's healthcare will always be covered. It is truly the greatest gift and we will forever be in their debt!”
