Insurance companies are legally bound to review claims honestly and uphold policy terms regardless of the impact on the carrier’s bottom line. Determining whether bad faith tainted a claims decision often requires detailed investigation of the facts and a thorough knowledge of the applicable legal standards. The attorneys of Long, Claypole & Blakley Law, PLC in Enid litigate various types of insurance bad faith claims and can help identify if some element of a claims decision is suspect or violates the insurer’s legal duty. In first- and third-party actions arising from vehicle accidents and other incidents, we’ll press for a proper result.
With 80 years of combined experience, our attorneys are skillful advocates who have the insurance and business law background to deliver effective guidance on issues such as:
In some instances, effective communication with an insurance company can persuade it to live up to its responsibility. Other times, litigation is required to recover the payment you deserve and possibly damages associated with your efforts. Whatever your situation demands, we will vigorously assert your rights.
After a car accident, injury victims often face significant financial pressure due to medical and repair costs. Auto insurance carriers might make these problems worse by looking out for their own financial interests during the claim evaluation process. When a carrier fails to abide by their legal duty by ignoring facts about the claim or failing to perform a legitimate investigation, our firm pursues justice on the policyholder’s behalf. If the insurer presents an unwarranted “reverse bad faith” defense claiming your actions thwarted a proper review, we will counter that allegation vigorously.
