We bring more than 20 years of experience to disputes involving general liability insurance, homeowners insurance, commercial property insurance, dram shop or liquor liability insurance, specialty insurance, life insurance, disability insurance and other types of insurance. Individuals and businesses can turn to our Chicago insurance policyholder coverage attorneys when they believe a claim has been wrongly denied by their insurer.Forcing Insurers To Fulfill Their Promises
To lure new business, insurance companies like to make very comforting statements on television that they will take care of you. They make a lot of promises. You purchase a policy and pay your premium based on the expectation that those promises will be fulfilled if the need arises. Unfortunately, insurance companies thrive by denying and underpaying claims, not on fulfilling promises. Thankfully, policyholders have rights, too.
Unlike most contracts, where two people negotiate over contract terms and then sign the agreement, there is typically no negotiating with insurance companies: the insured individual or business either accepts the coverage as it is or does not get coverage at all from the insurer. Fortunately in Illinois, contracts drafted by insurance companies on a "take it or leave it" basis must be read in favor of the insured.
Our team includes a former insurance defense lawyer. We have a thorough understanding of the laws intended to protect insurance consumers. Armed with this knowledge and experience, we fight tirelessly against the insurance companies when they deny or underpay claims in bad faith. Our goal is to force the insurer to fulfill its promise to you and cover the claim, as well as pay for damages caused by delay or denial.Free Consultation: Insurance Policyholder Coverage Attorneys In Chicago
