Highly Qualified Attorneys Help With Iowa Bad Faith Claims
Talented representation in West Des Moines protecting your interests when your insurance company fails you
Insurance companies have a duty to provide fair compensation when those they cover have valid claims. However, insurance companies are businesses where profitability is, above all else, paramount.
Unscrupulous agents and other insurance company representatives routinely try to diminish the value of the insured’s claim to preserve their bottom line. As a result, many individuals, families and businesses who suffer property damage are left in the lurch when their insurer refuses to reimburse them after a disaster leads them to file storm damage or fire insurance claims. This action is called bad faith, and you have every right to contest an insurance company’s bad faith practices and seek what is yours according to your policy’s terms and conditions.
How to tell if you have a bad faith claim in West Des Moines
It can be difficult to know what constitutes bad faith if you are unfamiliar with Iowa’s laws governing insurance companies and their policies. Your insurance company may be guilty of bad faith if it:
- Denies your claim despite its validity
- Delays paying you in a timely manner
- Twists the language of your policy to limit their obligation to you
- Fails thoroughly to investigate your claim
- Underestimates the extent of your losses to avoid paying you the true value of your claim
