Did you know that under Louisiana law insurance companies are required to treat you fairly? Whether you have made a claim against another driver’s insurance or against your own insurance company under your uninsured motorist (UM) policy, you have legal rights that require the insurance company to pay your claims within a reasonable amount of time.
If you have provided the insurance company with all of the information needed to fairly adjust and pay your claim, and they refuse to pay up without having a reasonable defense or excuse, you could be entitled to additional compensation. Insurance policies, like all other contracts, put certain obligations on the parties to the contract. This includes the insurance company.
If you have lived up to your end of the bargain but, the insurance company still refuses to pay you with no justifiable excuse, you need to contact an experienced and qualified attorney who can help you determine if the insurance company has acted in bad faith by giving you the run around or flat out denying your claim, entitling you to a greater recovery.
If you have been injured in a car accident, and the insurance company is acting in bad faith, learn about your legal rights from an experienced Louisiana car wreck lawyer by calling 504-581-4892 or by filling out our free, no obligation case review form.
