Insurance and Bad Faith


People buy insurance for protection from the financial ruin that can result from mistakes that cause injuries and loss to others.  When insurance companies fail to treat their insureds fairly and rely on illegitimate reasons to deny valid claims, the insured becomes a victim and has claims for breach of contract and bad faith against the insurance company.  G&K attorneys can help victims to analyze the conduct of insurance companies and obtain not only the benefits those victims paid an insurance premium for, but also compensation for the anxiety, risk, stress and other harm the insurance companies’ actions have caused.  Gallagher & Kennedy has obtained numerous significant settlements with major insurers for bad faith handling of insureds’ claims.
