Insurance policies are intended to protect you from unexpected loss. But what do you do when your claim is wrongfully denied?
The wrongful denial of an insurance claim is considered a bad faith claim. It is a breach of the insurer’s responsibility to you, the insured, and you do have legal recourse. If you believe you have been wrongfully denied payment on a covered insurance loss, you should contact one of the Denver, Colorado construction claims consultants at Schlueter, Mahoney & Ross P.C. Our experienced construction attorneys will thoroughly review your policy, the claim and the denial and advise you on an appropriate course of action.
A bad faith insurance claim may take many forms. There may have been improper or inadequate claim processing, a delay in response to your claim, payment or settlement, unreasonable denial of a claim, or failure to investigate a loss or claim. A bad faith insurance claim may also result from failure to settle or defend a case or negligent handling of the case.
