Oklahoma Insurance Bad Faith Lawyer Who Stands Up To Corporations
Don't let insurance companies dictate what happens to you. Contact us.
Insurance companies are legally required to deal fairly with their insured customers and act in "good faith." This means that a company cannot make up a reason to deny your claim when your policy manual states it will be covered, whether you're dealing with a personal injury or you're submitting a claim against your homeowner's policy.
Bad faith can involve the insurance company's failure to properly investigate your claim or improper valuation of your damages. An insurance company may also be acting in bad faith in Oklahoma if it fails to properly defend a lawsuit or refuses to pay the lawsuit settlement.

Insurance companies and their policy holders are both required to honor the contract and act in "good faith and fair dealing." This means that you both hold up your end of the policy when it comes to an insurance claim.
For example, you must submit your claim in a timely fashion, cooperate with the insurer regarding the loss, and provide any reasonably requested information. They, in turn, must pay a claim covered by the insured's policy.
If an insurance company refuses to pay a covered claim or tries to settle it for less than the true and fair value, it could be considered "bad faith." Insurance policies can be complicated and difficult to understand. Get the help you need now. Contact Lawter & Associates, PLLC.
