Boulder Insurance Dispute Lawyer Serving Colorado
All insurance companies are very good at charging premiums, but too often they fail to deliver on their promises in your time of need. Because policyholders depend on insurance companies for financial security, the law imposes a responsibility on insurers to act fairly and in good faith. Good faith means a lot of things. It requires honesty, legitimate and sincere offers and estimates, and timely payment of claims. In certain situations, good faith requires that the insurance company treats the insured’s interest at least equally with its own.
Jim Cederberg assists clients throughout Boulder with their insurance dispute claims, including individuals located in:
Failure to Meet Any of These Responsibilities Is Bad Faith
When an insurance company fails, for any reason, to pay what it owes under the terms of the policy, you may need a lawyer’s assistance to collect what you are owed. If the failure to pay includes bad faith, you may be entitled to additional damages above and beyond the policy amounts.
Common circumstances that involve claims against your own insurance company are uninsured motorist insurance claims, life insurance claims, homeowners policy claims, disability insurance claims and health insurance claims.
Uninsured motorist coverage under your automobile policy provides benefits in the event you are injured in a motor vehicle accident and the at-fault party has no insurance or inadequate insurance. Uninsured motorist claims are much like other auto accident claims except you are dealing with your own insurance company.
Penalties for Unreasonable Denial or Delay
Colorado law provides statutory remedies for unreasonable denial or delay of payments due under your insurance coverage, including twice the amount delayed, attorneys’ fees and costs.
