Bad Faith Claims Attorney
Austin Injury Attorney Stephen G. Nagle Protects Victim’s Rights Against Bad Faith Insurance Companies
You have followed all your insurance company’s rules. You have paid all the premiums on your auto insurance, health insurance, life insurance and homeowners insurance. Then, through no fault of your own, you suffer a serious personal injury. The last thing you would expect would be for your insurance company to act inappropriately. Unfortunately, they do – all the time.
Insurance bad faith laws protect consumers from unethical practices by insurance companies, such as refusal to pay a claim in compliance under the policy, delaying claim processing, requiring excessive forms and reports, making partial claim payments, canceling coverage because of a claim and denying health insurance coverage after a medical diagnosis.
NAGLE’S NUGGET: The main goal of your insurance company, no matter how nice and accommodating they are to you, is to give you the least amount of money possible for your claim. They have a team of adjusters and attorneys to protect their own interests, not yours.
Insurance bad faith can arise from many different situations such as car accidents, animal attacks, truck accidents, motorcycle and bicycle accidents, construction accidents and other on the job injuries, slip and fall injuries and injuries from defective products.
In Texas, the Texas Department of Insurance supervises insurance companies. Generally, insurance bad faith claims fall under Texas law. However, in some cases, certain insurance disputes may fall under the federal law known as the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (“ERISA“). You need an injury lawyer who knows the system and knows the difference. Stephen G. Nagle is a personal injury law specialist* whose knowledge and comprehensive approach to insurance disputes gets you the compensation you rightfully deserve under your claim.
If you think your insurance company is acting in bad faith, it probably is. Do not give up on your claim; contact an attorney at Stephen G. Nagle & Associates promptly and let us fight the dispute for you.
