Insurance & Bad Faith Claims

You purchased an insurance policy to protect you and your loved ones from the impact of unforeseen accidents or injuries. But some insurance providers don’t live up to their promises. Bad faith insurance claims arise when an insurance provider wrongfully denies payment of benefits and/or delays payment of an insurance claim, violating its obligation to act in good faith and deal fairly with its insureds. Often, bad faith claims involve automobile insurance, disability insurance, homeowner’s policies, medical insurance, and personal injury protection insurance. Feldman Shepherd is one of a small number of firms with substantial experience and a track record of excellent results in bad faith cases, including the unreasonable refusal to pay benefits in the following matters:

  • Disability Insurance Claims
  • Failure to Defend or Indemnity
  • Life Insurance Claims
  • Insurance Discrimination
  • Health, Homeowner, and Auto Insurance Claims
  • Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Benefits

Our experienced attorneys can help you secure all of the compensation to which you may be entitled, including recovery for your financial losses, emotional distress, and punitive damages. Our insurance coverage practice group secured a $7.9 million verdict, one of the largest insurance bad faith verdicts ever handed down in Pennsylvania, for a doctor who was exposed to a jury verdict because his insurance provider failed to offer the limits of his own policy to an injured patient.

Your insurance company is obligated to honor the insurance contract and act in good faith. When it fails to do so, the attorneys at Feldman Shepherd can help. Our dedicated insurance coverage attorneys are here to serve you with hard work, attention to detail, and a caring approach tailored to your individual needs. When your insurance company is acting improperly, unfairly, or unjustly, you can trust the attorneys at Feldman Shepherd to help protect your rights.
