Bad Faith Insurance Claim Denials

Helping You Obtain The Compensation You Deserve

If you file a claim with your insurance company and they deny it without properly investigating, that is called a bad faith claim denial, and it is illegal under Louisiana law. If this has happened to you, you need a lawyer with the experience to take the fight to the insurance companies and get justice. That is what The Law Office of Bruce C. Betzer does for our clients facing insurance claim denials after homeowner or property damage.

What Is A Bad Faith Insurance Claim Denial?

According to Louisiana statutes 22:1892 and 22:1973, insurance companies are required to make a good faith effort to fairly and properly adjust claims. They are prohibited from denying legitimate claims for reasons that are:

  • Arbitrary
  • Capricious
  • Lacking in probable cause

When insurance companies fail or delay in the paying of a legitimate claim, they can be subject to punitive damages and attorney fees.

The vast majority of personal injury, property damage and workers' compensation claims involve insurance companies. That is why it is so important to work with a legal team that can stand against major insurance companies throughout the litigation process to help clients obtain the full compensation they deserve. If the insurance company in your case is not paying on a legitimate claim, we will fight to make it pay.
