Your insurer has a duty to you to honor the terms of your insurance policy. Unfortunately, many insurance companies are more interested in turning a profit that fulfilling their obligations to its customers.

The law recognizes the disparity in bargaining power between an insurance company and its customers.

Failing to promptly and thoroughly investigate your claim
Requiring excessive statements and estimates to support a valid claim
Setting unreasonable appointment times for statements and estimates
Delaying payment of your claim
Failing to provide a written explanation of why your claim was denied
