Bad Faith Insurance Claims Lawyers

A bad faith insurance claim describes litigation against an insurance company. It is a tort claim that an insured individual may have against the insurance company for its unreasonable failure to pay claims promptly fully and fairly.

Insurance companies owe a duty of good faith and fair dealing of the persons they insure. This duty is often referred to as the “implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing” which automatically exists by operation of law in every insurance contract.

In addition to a tort claim, the insured person may also sue the company for breach of contract. The contract-tort distinction is significant because as a matter of public policy punitive or exemplary damages are unavailable for contract claims but are available for tort claims. The end result is that a plaintiff in an insurance bad faith case may be able to recover an amount larger than the original face value of the policy if the insurance company’s conduct was particularly egregious.

Many law firms rely on lawyers or paralegals to review, interpret, and understand medical records. Lawyers and paralegals are not medically trained professionals. Although these legal professionals need to have a working understanding of general medical issues to effectively represent clients in personal injury or medical malpractice cases, their conclusions about those medical records cannot always be relied upon.

At the Attorneys for Freedom Law Firm, we have a team of medical professionals who can review your records. They can also offer additional medical-related recommendations to further develop all aspects of our clients’ cases.

I hired Attorneys For Freedom in 2020 for a very serious matter involving my significant other. I... spent a couple of hours calling around looking for attorneys and the ONLY attorney willing to talk to me on behalf of my significant other was Andy Marcantel. It was end of day and he took the time, to speak to me and to myself, my significant other and his family, the next day as well.I knew immediately, I wanted to hire Andy for this serious matter. My significant other was facing serious time and we were both terrified. I trusted Andy and his team to get the absolute, best, possible outcome. From the very beginning, Andy was nothing short of truthful, communicative, professional, informative, kind and hilarious.I would email Andy late at night with concerns or questions and he would communicate back immediately just to let me know he was scheduling us a meeting the next day to go over everything. For almost 2 years, Andy and his team worked diligently on this case and about 3 weeks ago, it went to court for the last time and my significant other received the BEST outcome possible. Considering what he was facing, I will never be able to thank Andy properly for his work but what I can do, is let EVERYONE know, if you’re in need of a law firm, I HIGHLY recommend Attorneys For Freedom. You will not be disappointed.There is so much integrity, kindness and care in that office.Attorneys For Freedom holds true to their mission statement and their values.Andy, I cannot thank you enough for everything and the time and effort you took to ensure we understood every single part of the case and the justice system. I’m eternally grateful to you.read more

I had my doubts at the beginning, Andy, is one of the best guys I have known. He answers every... question I ask, he is there from start to finish. He has a client now for the rest of my life, if anything were to happen. I cannot be more happier with the way these guys run their businessread more
