Insurance Bad Faith
Disputes are common involving a wide range of insurance coverages including health insurance, homeowner’s insurance, auto insurance, disability policies, and life insurance claims.
Your insurance company has a duty to treat you fairly concerning your claim. If your insurance carrier breaches this duty and treats you unfairly, they are acting in Bad Faith. If an insurance carrier is found to have treated their insured unfairly, they may be responsible for actual damages and punitive damages.
When you’re injured due to someone else’s negligence, you shouldn’t have to worry about how to pay for the medical treatment you need or how you’ll support your family. And while insurance policies are designed to compensate you after an accident or injury, the adjusters that help decide the size of your settlement have one goal—to maximize the insurance company’s profits.
Semi Truck Accidents
Semis and other commercial trucks that haul cargo throughout the United States are inherently dangerous. The size and weight of an 18 wheeler makes them dangerous, especially when involving a collision with a much smaller passenger vehicle. A semi’s sheer size creates issues with visibility, maneuverability and the driver’s ability to bring his commercial vehicle to a stop.
If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident, chances are that you are now suffering from serious injuries. From road rash, contusions, and broken bones to serious catastrophic injuries involving your brain and spine.
Motorcyclists typically suffer more serious injuries when compared to car accident victims. The obvious reason is that a motorcyclist has very small amounts of protection compared to a car, SUV or truck. Motorcycle riders are also more likely to be thrown from their bike resulting in serious and sometimes devastating permanent injuries.
