When we suffer accidents, injuries, damage to our homes or other losses, we expect insurance to cover those losses. After all, this is why we purchase health insurance, life insurance, homeowner’s insurance, renter’s insurance and automobile insurance policies. Sometimes, however, insurance companies refuse to pay benefits for valid claims. Insurers may also unfairly delay payment of benefits, fail to settle a claim within policy limits, use unethical business practices, or expect policyholders to pay hidden fees. These unfair practices are known as insurance bad faith. Scartelli Olszewski’s experienced Scranton lawyers represent victims of insurance denials and insurance bad faith.
Insurers may act in bad faith with regard to a wide range of insurance policies. These include automobile, boat and recreational vehicle insurance, uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage, business insurance, health and disability insurance, life insurance and homeowner insurance, among many others. If you believe your insurance company has violated the terms of your policy, or that a third party’s insurance company owes you benefits, we encourage you to contact our law firm without delay.
