Has your insurance company failed to provide you the coverage you deserve and paid for?

Denver Accident Injury Lawyers Holding Insurance Companies Accountable

Do you have a dispute with your insurance company over a current accident claim. When you purchase insurance coverage, whether it is car insurance, business insurance or even health insurance, you establish a contract with the insurance company to provide you with the coverage as stated in the policy. The details of the contract vary from situation to situation, but what they are required to cover is specifically lined out in writing. When the insurance company violates that contract, you are entitled to file a claim against them for bad faith, in essence allowing you to pursue the coverage you were entitled to and in addition recover damages from them for breach of contract. It is a legal agreement into which you have entered. As such, you may require professional legal assistance to pursue compensation when the agreement is broken. If the denial or delay of your legitimate insurance claim has caused you undue hardship or financial stress, we will ensure that the insurance company is held accountable for its actions.

Insurance Bad Faith Claims: Inconvenience and Financial Hardship

Insurance is supposed to be there to help you cover sudden expenses from accidents, medical situations, and anything else that you have lined out in your coverage contract with them. When they fail to deliver, it can leave you in a dire situation where you have difficulty paying for the things you need. You may have to sacrifice other expenses to take care of those more pressing, and this can have many adverse effects on you and your loved ones. If the financial distress becomes pressing enough to affect your ability to pay your bills, then your credit will suffer. Credit problems can follow you for years and years, making it difficult to buy homes, vehicles, insurance, and much more. The longer you wait to get help pursuing a bad faith claim for the money your insurance company owes you, the more likely you are to develop problems paying bills and protecting your credit.

What it Means to Be a “Permissive User” of a Loaned Car

Posted by: Chad Hemmat | Thursday, October 29, 2015 | 0 Comments

personal injury treating doctorWe probably all remember our parents allowing us to drive one of their vehicles while we were in high school. If your parents were like my parents, they of course told you to be careful. They may have even told you not to loan your car to anyone else because if you did, you would not be “covered.” What your Dad meant by that was that if you gave your car to someone else your auto insurance would not cover any injuries that your friend caused to someone else because your friend did not have permission to drive the vehicle. Well, this is one of the few times that your Dad was actually wrong. Continue Reading...

Now Your Insurance Has To Pay You Piecemeal Benefits if Need Be (A Way They Hate the Most)

Posted by: Chad Hemmat | Tuesday, May 26, 2015 | 0 Comments

uim-car-insuranceThe uninsured/underinsured motorist statute found in our Colorado State laws at C.R.S. § 10-4-609, mandates that an insurance company must evaluate their insured’s loss and pay the claim when due. Furthermore, C.R.S. § 10-3-1115/1116 provides for a penalty against an insurance company if that company unreasonably delays or denies a covered benefit when due. Nonetheless, whether an insurance company had an obligation to pay piecemeal benefits remained unsettled until May 7, 2015 when the Colorado Court of Appeals issued its decision in Fisher v. State Farm Automobile Insurance Company, 13 CA 2361. Insurance companies hate the idea of paying part of a claim, and then having to pay more when more damages/losses are incurred or substantiated. They prefer the leverage associated with holding undisputed money ransom until a policyholder capitulates and accepts less to resolve an entire claim forever. Therefore, the Fisher case is groundbreaking. Continue Reading...

Insurance Company Bad Faith: Knowing What Not to Argue

Posted by: Chad Hemmat | Wednesday, March 02, 2011 | 0 Comments

When an insurance company is on trial for its conduct, its best friends are "confusion, complexity, and distraction." Every argument an insurance company makes in response to a policyholder's complaints about its misbehavior is geared toward making the case as complex as possible while confusing and distracting the jury. After all, if the jury is confused as to whether the insurance company's conduct was reasonable, they will likely determine that the plaintiff has not met his burden of proof and do the easy thing...decide in favor of the insurance company. After all, the jury wants to get back to living their everyday lives. Think of "confusion, complexity and distraction" as the key to nearly every insurance company defense to nearly everything. Continue Reading...

Bad Faith Insurance Conduct: It's Sort of a Personal Injury Case, But So Much More

Posted by: Chad Hemmat | Friday, July 23, 2010 | 0 Comments

As a trial lawyer for nearly 20 years, there is nothing like the thrill of knowing that you are standing up on the first day of trial on behalf of a deserving injury victim. Our motto always comes into my mind at that precise moment: "justice for victims begins here." There is no greater thrill than bringing in a well-deserved verdict for such a victim. However, the one thing that I know exists and I must overcome in every trial, with the exception of one type of case, is general juror suspicion. I must dig myself and my client out of this imaginary hole. At the start of a trial, a plaintiff bringing a personal injury case and his counsel are almost universally looked down upon by jurors as being the ones with an agenda. Continue Reading...
