Bad Faith Insurance in Pittsburgh, PA
INSURANCE COMPANY BAD FAITH
In Pennsylvania, insurance companies are required to exercise good faith and fair dealing in their dealings with policyholders. The insurance company is also required to consider the interests of the policyholder above its own interests when adjusting an insurance claim. If an insurance company acts unreasonably in either the investigation of your insurance claim or denies a claim without a reasonable basis to do so, the insurance company may have acted in bad faith, in violation of Pennsylvania law.
While many consumers feel helpless in the face of the repeated demands by insurance companies for documentation which they believe has already been provided, requests for information which the policyholder cannot possibly attain, and estimates of damages and values of personal property which are difficult to understand, there is help available.
If you feel that the insurance company has acted or is acting unreasonably, you have every right to challenge their behavior. The attorneys at Behrend and Ernsberger, P.C. have years of experience reviewing insurance policies and insurance claims to determine whether the offer being made by the insurance company is adequate and provides the complete compensation that a policyholder is entitled to receive under the policy.
If necessary, the attorneys at Behrend and Ernsberger, P.C. can, and will, take your case to court.
If you believe that your insurance company has acted in bad faith while adjusting your claim, please contact the legal team at Behrend and Ernsberger, P.C. today at (412) 391-2515.
