Bad Faith Insurance Claims
As a policyholder, you expect any insurance claim you file to be handled in good faith. If your claim has been denied or underpaid, you may not know how to address the issue.
Retain a trusted Overland Park or Liberty insurance lawyer if you wish to:
- Understand the terms of your policy
- Pursue a bad faith insurance claim
- Ensure your rights are not violated during the process
Bad faith by an insurance company can take many forms such as denying a valid claim, delaying payment that is due, substantially reducing payouts that should follow valid claims, canceling a policy without good cause, and failing to follow the terms of the policy as it has been written by the insurance company.
Resolving Subrogation with Poise & Professionalism
Subrogation involves an insurance company making its own claim against a third party that may have caused or contributed to a loss the company had to cover. Subrogation can occur under both personal and business policies. At Gates Shields, we offer comprehensive counsel to insurance carriers for subrogation actions.
Our attorneys have over a decade of experience in subrogation matters and regularly attend and present at the National Association of Subrogation Professionals’ annual conference. Our attorneys have also been published in the Association’s publication, the Subrogator.
