By having a Chicago commercial litigation attorney intercede, the insured can send a clear message that it understands its rights and will not settle for less than what it deserves.
Taking insurers to task for bad faith behavior
In some circumstances, an insured that has been improperly denied coverage may make a claim for bad faith failure to provide insurance coverage, pursuant to the Illinois Insurance Act, 215 ILCS ¶ 5/155. To deter insurers from behaving in this way, the act allows an insured to recover damages in addition to the amount of the insurance claim. To enforce their rights, it is important for companies and individuals who have a dispute with their insurance carriers to obtain competent representation quickly. The insurance coverage liability lawyers of the Clinton Law Firm carefully document instances of insurance company bad faith to hold those companies accountable for their refusal to pay or diligently investigate and process claims.
