What to Do if Your Rightful Insurance Claim Is Denied
After a serious accident, your primary focus should be on obtaining necessary medical treatment. The last thing you want to deal with is a denied insurance claim. However, liable insurance companies deny or devalue just claims all the time. In fact, it is in their best financial interest to do so. So often, injured individuals are unable to recover the fair compensation they are owed because the insurance company simply denies their claim or offers a too-low settlement that does not cover the cost of damages.
Here at Jeff Roberts & Associates, PLLC, we are committed to protecting your rights. When someone else’s negligence leaves you severely injured, you have the right to receive compensation to cover the cost of medical treatment, lost income/wages, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and more.

What Is an Insurance Bad Faith Claim?
In the state of Tennessee, individuals can file a “bad faith” claim against an insurer when that insurer denies a rightful claim for unjust reasons. Essentially, an insurance bad faith claim is meant to punish an insurance company that fails its duty to fairly compensate its customers. The insurance company in question is subject to penalties and punitive damages when they do not treat injured individuals fairly.
How can you tell if your initial claim was unjustly denied? Some examples of how insurance companies do not act in good faith include:
Failing to properly investigate a claim
Unreasonably misinterpreting policy claims
Delaying payment excessively
Refusing to settle a claim
Offering an unreasonably low settlement
If you believe an insurance company has acted in bad faith or, in other words, unjustly denied or devalued your claim, you can take legal action against that company. The first step is to reach out to an experienced denied insurance claims lawyer in Nashville. Insurance bad faith claims are typically very complex and difficult to navigate, which is why it is important that you have a skilled legal advocate on your side.
