When you are a victim of some sort of loss, and you have insurance to cover that loss – such as a fire destroys your house, or a thief steals your car, or a thief steals your furs and jewelry that are inside your house – when you are a victim from such a loss, you expect your insurance company to do the right thing and to pay for your claim as fast as possible, to make sure that you are compensated for the loss. That’s why you’re paying premiums each month or each year to your insurance company; for the protections of having insurance in case of a tragedy that strikes you or your family.
Unfortunately, insurance companies do not often pay. Sometimes they straight out deny these first party claims for a variety of reasons. If that happens, you may have rights against your insurance company. You may be able to collect not only the benefits that you’re entitled to under the insurance policy, but go after your insurance company and get them sanctioned, penalized, get attorneys’ fees, for what we call unreasonable, vexatious and bad faith practices.
At Gainsberg Law, we do go after insurance companies. We make sure insurance companies pay the benefits that they are legally obligated to pay under insurance policies with their policyholders. We make sure that insurance companies treat their customers fairly and justly, and we do collect bad faith damages against insurance companies. We do get them penalized if they do not do what the law requires them to do. If you have an issue with an insurance company and they are not properly handling your claim, please call 312-313-1621 or email us, or visit our website at GainsbergLaw.com.
