How Our Attorneys Protect You from Insurance Tactics and Bad Faith

Knowledgeable legal team providing the strong representation you need

At the Baton Rouge law firm of Marks and Lear PLC, we provide clients who are injured by the negligence or fault of others with strong representation against insurance tactics and bad faith actions on the part of insurance companies. It is important to approach each personal injury case with professional experience, because insurance companies — representing those individuals and companies responsible for the accident and resulting injuries — have their own team of investigators, adjustors, agents and lawyers working on their behalf.

Baton Rouge attorneys challenge insurance companies

As businesses, insurance companies are primarily concerned with maximizing their profits by limiting their payout — to your disadvantage. They are not legally required to inform you of aspects of their policies such as:

  • How much liability insurance is available
  • If the policyholder has additional liability or excess insurance policies
  • The applicability of any uninsured or underinsured motorist insurance coverage, which you may have or which may be included in the policy on the vehicle in which you are a passenger

By not telling you about benefits to which you are rightfully entitled, insurance companies increase the likelihood that you — as an inexperienced and injured accident victim — will settle for less compensation or no compensation at all.

In addition, insurance companies may act in bad faith by wrongfully denying a valid claim or offering to settle for far less than a claim is actually worth. There are many types of bad faith, including:

  • Denial of benefits without good reason
  • Unreasonable delay in paying benefits
  • Failure to properly investigate a claim
  • Undervaluation of a claim

Experience is the key to success against insurance companies
