The law firm of Goldfinch Winslow, LLC provides sound solutions and reliable guidance for all facets of insurance litigation:

  • Annuities and life insurance disputes
  • Automobile insurance disputes
  • Business insurance policy disputes
  • Commercial insurance policy disputes
  • Elder abuse through misrepresentation
  • Home insurance policy disputes
  • Insurance bad faith
  • Suitability and breach of fiduciary duty by financial advisers

Issues related to insurance litigation vary. Some insurance lawsuits result from the denial of a claim or through the claimant being offered significantly less than the actual worth of the claim. An insurer’s alleged bad faith includes their failure to make crucial information available to the policyholder, or their failure to conduct a timely investigation into a claim. An insurance company’s refusal to settle or negotiate claims can become a subject of litigation.

A policyholder, beneficiary, or third-party claimant may file court action to seek damages when they believe that insurers engaged in unreasonable or unfair practices concerning their claims and coverage. If an insurer fails to comply with the contract it has with its client by not consulting about the case/settlement, and a judge rules that the insurer acted in bad faith; or shown itself to be unreasonable — the insurer may be subject to further penalty for each violation. The insurer may also be responsible for paying the legal expenses of the plaintiff and the resulting judgment amount.
