Protecting You When Insurance Claims Are Denied In Bad Faith
The denial of an insurance claim can be devastating. People who file claims are often counting on that money to make themselves whole after an injury, property damage or any other situation that has caused a loss. If you believe an insurance company has denied your claim without basis for the denial, it may be possible to file a lawsuit.

Whether it is after a car accident, damage to a home resulting from a natural disaster or any other situation that prompted you to file a claim, we are here to help. Based in New York City, our lawyers and staff are committed to assisting clients in every stage of handling their denied insurance claim case.
What Constitutes A Denial In Bad Faith?
When there is a bad faith denial of an insurance claim, one of two situations typically occurs:
- The monetary compensation that is payable under the policy benefits is withheld. This means that the claim was well-founded according to the stipulated specifics of the insurance policy, but for some reason, the insurer is keeping the funds and not paying out on the claim. We believe this is an intolerable situation and work tirelessly to see that you get the money you are owed according to your insurance policy.
- The reasons the insurance company is withholding the money are baseless. This situation occurs when an insurance company decides to offer a brief, flippant or even completely senseless reason for the nonpayment of the claim. The insurer may assert that the claim was not filed following the proper procedures or within a certain time frame, or other reasons that call into question the minutia of the filing of the claim and the details of the loss for which the claim is being filed.
