Disability & Business Insurance claims denied?
TWe purchase insurance for protection in the event of catastrophes like fires, natural disaster, auto death or disabling injury. When the unthinkable happens, we turn to that insurance policy to make things right again. Unfortunately, that’s not always what happens. All too often, the insurer denies the claim, agrees to pay only a portion of the true value of the claim, or delays payment for months or even years.
If you relied on your insurance company to compensate you after injury or loss, but it failed you when you needed it most, you may be the victim of insurance bad faith. Contact California bad faith claims dispute lawyers at Wood & Delgado.

Punitive Damages for Insurance Bad Faith
An insurance policy is a contract between the insured and the insurer. Insurance bad faith is a breach of that contract. Victims of insurance bad faith may take legal action to recover for their specific losses (compensatory damages) as well as punitive damages. In this case, punitive damages are meant to punish the insurers for their wrong actions.
