What reasons can I sue my insurance company for?
Breach of contract: If the insurance company breaks a rule under the contract you have with them, such as not paying for damage or loss that is covered by your policy, they are held responsible to pay (plus additional damages).
Violation of a consumer protection law: If the insurance company denies or delays a claim, this law protects insurance policy buyers and awards damages 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 the 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.
Insurance companies acting in bad faith
As many consumers have found out, being a loyal customer of their insurance company doesn’t seem to mean much when you submit a claim. Too often, insurance companies try to weasel out of paying the full amount of a claim or even deny the claim altogether. All states have laws requiring insurance companies to act in “good faith” with their policyholders. If your insurance company denies your claim, tries to minimize the amount paid on your claim, or acts unreasonably in handling your claim, your only recourse is to file a lawsuit against them to get what you deserve on your claim.
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 or minimizing the amount they pay on a claim.

Krista & Victor Challenged a 60-Year-Old Settlement Cap and WON!

Krista LaFave and Victor Harding made a recovery for almost nine times more than is allowed by law! My husband was killed in an auto accident because a municipality failed to erect warning signs alerting drivers of a road closure ahead. Early on, I was told that a municipality is protected by a $50,000 cap and that was the most that could be recovered for his wrongful death. A statutory $50,000 cap enacted 35 years ago is meaningless in today’s dollars. It provides no accountability or consequences for a municipality’s gross negligence. Krista and Victor discovered a statute that rendered the $50,000 cap inapplicable in certain situations. The statute written 60 years ago had never before been tested. Through their perseverance in applying this law, I was able to recover far more than the cap. I can only pray that this result causes the municipality to change its ways.You can’t find better representation out there than can be provided by Warshafsky.
