Defending Insurance Companies Against Bad Faith Claims
There are legitimate reasons for insurance companies denying or delaying in paying off the claims of policyholders. However, lawsuits from policyholders are extremely common. All too frequently, people facing insurance claim denials will immediately seek to sue the insurance company.
It is important to get strong counsel and advocacy through the process. At Summers, McDonnell, Hudock, Guthrie & Rauch, P.C., we have been protecting insurance companies against lawsuits of this kind since 1991. With offices in Pittsburgh and Harrisburg, we represent clients throughout Pennsylvania.
We handle claims involving:
- Breach of covenant of good faith
- Unreasonable delay in investigating a claim
- Unreasonable delay in paying a claim
- Unfair claim denial
- Unfair settlement offer
