Wisconsin Lawyers Who Sue Insurance Companies
Milwaukee Law Firm Fights for Your Right to be Treated Fairly by Your Insurance Company
As many consumers have found out, being a loyal customer of their insurance company doesn’t seem to mean much when they have a claim. Too often, insurance companies try to weasel out of paying the full amount of a claim, or even deny the claim altogether. If your insurance company isn’t living up to their promise to pay on your claim, your only recourse is to file suit against them.
All states have laws requiring insurance companies to act in “good faith” with their policyholders. If they deny your legitimate claim, try to minimize the amount paid on your claim, or act unreasonably in handling your claim, you have the right to sue them to get payment on your claim—and quite possibly even damages for acting in bad faith.
INJURED? It IS About The Money.®
Insurance companies often reject claims with sketchy explanations, such as denying medical coverage because a policyholder failed to disclose a hearing problem that has nothing to do with the claim they filed. They’ll use all kinds of tactics to skip out on paying a claim, or to minimize the amount they pay. In legal terms, there are three “causes of action” for bringing a lawsuit against an insurance company:
- Breach of contract: If the insurance company breaks a rule under the contract you have with them, as they would by not paying for a damage or loss that is covered by your policy, this is considered a breach of contract.
- Violation of a consumer protection law: Consumer protection laws were designed to protect consumers who buy products or services for family or household use, and insurance policies are included in these services. The laws permit damages to be awarded for the amount you should have been paid on your claim, as well as for attorney fees, costs and other expenses.
- Violation of the “bad faith” law: If your insurance company unreasonably denies or delays payment on your claim, they are in violation of Wisconsin’s bad faith law and can be sued for damages. A judge determines the amount awarded.
Where Do You Find An Attorney To Sue Your Insurance Company?
Suing an insurance company is complicated. It requires experienced attorneys who are willing to take cases to trial—the kind of attorneys you’ll find at Warshafsky Law. Having lawyers on staff who have worked for insurance companies, Warshafsky Law knows all the tricks they try to pull and, more importantly, how to deal with them.
