Has your insurance company wrongfully denied your insurance claim?
When you make an insurance claim, the law in Texas states that the insurance company has a duty of “good faith and fair dealing” when investigating the claim. However, all too often, the insurance companies seek to profit by dealing in bad faith with their customers by unfairly denying, delaying or limiting benefits without a reasonable basis.
If you feel your insurance company has treated you unfairly and failed to fulfill its legal obligations, it is important to consult with an experienced bad faith insurance claim lawyer.

About Bad Faith Insurance Claims
Under Texas law, insurance companies owe a duty of good faith and fair dealing to their customers. When they fail to honor that commitment and act in bad faith, the people who were relying upon insurance benefits can suffer severe financial hardship. Examples of insurance bad faith include:
- Undervaluing claims
- Unjustified delay in paying a claim
- Refusing to adequately investigate a claim
- Creating unreasonable obstacles for the claimant to overcome
- Using biased experts such as investigators, loss adjusters and property valuation experts to undervalue a claim
- Threatening you, the policyholder, with costly lawsuits or even criminal investigations
