Insurance is a bet you make that something tragic might happen to you. Hopefully, you always “lose” that bet and are never the victim of a serious loss that requires you to make an insurance claim for compensation. Unfortunately, when disaster strikes, insurance companies do not always honor the bargains they struck.
We help individuals and business who year after year diligently paid their insurance premium, suffer a loss, and are now being mistreated by their insurance company. If your insurer has wrongfully denied a claim, adjusted it in an unfair manner, or is simply giving you the runaround, the insurance company might be acting in “bad faith.” In 2011, Richard A. Harpootlian, P.A. helped a small business in Greenville, South Carolina obtain an insurance bad faith verdict of $14.5 million after the business burnt down and the insurance company refused to pay.
