Damages Awarded in Insurance Bad Faith Cases

Lawyers Handling Insurance Bad Faith Claims Throughout the U.S.

The whole purpose of insurance is to provide policyholders with the funds they need to get by when things like their car, home, or health are compromised. However, a number of policyholders across the U.S. are stuck dealing with insurance claim denials, delays, cancellations, and other problems that keep them from getting the benefits they rightfully deserve.

At White & Stradley, PLLC, we want to let you know that you can take legal action when you feel an insurance company is violating your rights. By hiring our bad faith insurance lawyers to review your situation and seek evidence of insurance bad faith, you are greatly increasing the odds that you’ll get the money you need in the form of “damages.” The damages available to clients who are suing insurance companies varies based on the circumstances, the actual wording of the contract, and the insurer’s actions.

If you’re in the middle of a dispute with your insurance company regarding a life insurance claim, business insurance claim, homeowner coverage, auto insurance claim, or other type of coverage, you may be entitled to receive any of the following types of damages:

  • Contractual damages – compensation that upholds the insurer’s contractual obligation to deliver benefits
  • Economic/consequential damages – compensation for financial consequences of not receiving benefits
  • Punitive damages – compensation ordered to punish the insurance company for acting in an outrageous or malicious manner
  • Emotional damages – compensation for the emotional suffering that directly resulted from the insurer’s denial of benefits
  • Attorneys’ fees – compensation for all legal representation
