Austin Bad Faith Insurance Attorneys

We Will Help You Fight Insurance Companies

There are a number of challenges and obstacles victims of motorcycle accidents must deal with in the aftermath of a crash. Emergency room costs, surgery expenses, the cost of medical equipment, physical therapy, and lost earnings can add up very quickly. However, healing, recovering, and getting your life back to normalcy is not a survivor's only focus. Usually, he or she also has to deal with insurance companies to make sure that the bills are paid. This should be simple and straightforward, especially if you have the right kind of insurance policies and have been good about paying your premiums. Unfortunately, often times, it doesn't quite work that way.

On top of your physical pain and other issues you may be dealing with, including fixing your motorcycle, the insurance company may add to your troubles by fighting you every step of your way. Their hope is that you will be too overwhelmed and exhausted to pursue the compensation your rightfully deserve.

An experienced Austin motorcycle accident lawyer at the King Law Firm will help you fight insurance companies and help protect your rights. If you have been offered an unfair settlement or if your claim has been denied, please contact us at (512) 375-4455 to get more information about your legal rights and options.

What is Insurance Bad Faith?

"Bad faith" is a legal concept under which the law allows an individual to claim compensation if the insurance company wrongfully denies or limits coverage. Often, in these cases, there is no justification for doing so. It is a violation of a victim's legal rights for an insurance company to enter into an agreement and not fulfill it. There are a few different ways in which insurance companies may act in bad faith. For example, they may attempt to undervalue your claim without any justification. In other cases, they may try to delay or deny payment. The remedy for a consumer in such cases is to file a lawsuit against the insurance company. If bad faith is successfully proved, the plaintiff will receive damages as well as attorney's fees from the insurance company.

Dealing with Insurance Companies

Is the insurance company your friend? In the aftermath of a traumatic event such as a motorcycle accident, it may certainly seem that way. The insurance adjuster may seem very friendly and eager to help. However, often times, you may notice that he or she is eager to get more information from you and less enthusiastic about giving you any information. It is critical that victims, who are in a vulnerable state, steer clear of giving any recorded statements or giving insurance companies access to their medical records.

It is a fact that insurance companies are for-profit corporations whose goal is to protect their bottom line. Often, they tend to do this by limiting payouts and denying claims. Injured victims must be extremely vigilant when dealing with insurance companies especially immediately after an accident when they may be in a dazed or confused state.
