Practice Areas

Before checking to see if we handle the type of claim you have, remember – the clock could be running on your rights. Understand it is important to get a lawyer to examine your claim now, before that clock runs out.

Class Actions

A class-action lawsuit is beneficial when a group of people has been negatively impacted in similar ways. Truth is, litigation is costly, sometimes so much so that an individual is unable to pursue a claim. Although a class action unites the claims of many, it is presented as a single case allowing for a more cost-efficient approach. Because the voice of many typically overrides the voice of one, there is substantial success in holding companies and insurers accountable through class actions. This also prevents large companies from getting away with tiny thefts from large groups of people. Given the costs and time involved, it is unlikely you could find anyone willing to litigate a case over $50. However, if an employer or insurer overcharged a large number of people by that amount, then a class action is available to remedy and prevent these wide-ranging, but low-impact abuses.

Health Care Benefits

You have health care benefits for a reason, and you have every right to expect your insurance company to honor its coverage. Unfortunately, some insurance companies make decisions based upon personal profit rather than the welfare of their policyholders. The claims processor does not know you and has not met you or held your hand during medical care or an elongated hospital stay. We know your story. We understand the company’s failure to pay health claims can result in long-term repercussions for you. We work to make sure the insurance company honors what they rightfully should so you and your loved ones can focus on recovery.

Bad Faith

When an insurance company fails to pay a valid claim, it is guilty of failing to abide by its original promises. When that happens and a bad faith claim is filed in court, those court proceedings can last years. If the court finally holds the insurance company liable for their unjust denial, just making the company pay what it was supposed to in the first place is not enough. Otherwise, insurance companies would be free to deny all claims because there would be no punishment for bad conduct. When that unreasonable failure to fulfill a legal obligation occurs, bad faith claims are filed. In these cases, state laws allow individuals to seek punitive damages as punishment for dishonesty, which deters insurance companies from repeating that same bad faith behavior. These additional damages often far exceed the monetary injury suffered.
