Bad Faith Insurance Claims

If you believe your insurance claim was not properly investigated, or if your claim was denied without valid reason, you may be able to sue for additional damages under the state bad faith law. In St. Petersburg, Largo and the surrounding areas of Florida, the bad faith law requires that every insurance company acts in the best interest of its policyholders.

This Law Protects You

Under this law, insurance companies have to pay or deny a claim in a reasonable amount of time, evaluate the claim fairly, and cooperate with the claimants throughout the entire process. If any of these do not happen, then a bad faith disability insurance attorney could help you receive additional monetary sums that include:

  • Punitive damages
  • Attorney’s fees
  • Other damages caused by the insurance company

It is worth noting that bad faith laws do not apply to all disability claims. ERISA claims, for example, are exempt from this particular legal clause. For an evaluation of your disability insurance dispute and to see if bad faith applies, contact the disability attorney at CJ Henry Law Firm.

I was employed as a manager for a production line for a major manufacturing company for many years. I sustained a disabling shoulder injury which required surgery. After an unsuccessful attempt to return to work following surgery, I was taken out of work by my doctor. I filed claims for both short and long term disability benefits, which were ultimately terminated or denied. CJ Henry Law Firm was proactive in recommending a functional capacity assessment to provide the insurance company objective evidence of my inability to function. They also obtained a medical assessment of my functioning from my medical provider. C J Henry Law Firm assisted me in a successful appeal of long and short term disability benefits denial by Sun Life, and also successfully appealed my Social Security denial of disability benefits. C J Henry Law Firm systematically put a case together based on my authenticated medical condition and expert medical opinion that could not be denied upon review. Thanks C J Henry Law Firm for representing me and doing such a thorough job of putting these successful appeals together.
