We’re There For You When The Insurance Company Is Not
Insurance companies are required to follow the California Insurance Code (CIC) in our state. The CIC outlines the steps that insurance companies must take when a policyholder submits a claim. In spite of very clear directives and potential penalties and liabilities, insurance companies do not always follow the letter of the law. If you can’t count on the insurance company in your hour of need, what is the point in having insurance? At Hershorin & Henry, LLP, we help you hold the insurance company accountable so that you can get the insurance settlement you deserve.
Bad Faith And Breach Of Insurance Contract
The insurance company is legally in breach of contract if they fail to process your claim in “good faith” and deal with you fairly. If your insurance company is not honoring your policy, you have legal recourse and shouldn’t accept that treatment lying down.
There are three main types of bad faith claims:
- Breach of contract
- Failure to pay benefits
If you are deprived of the benefits guaranteed by your policy, the insurance company is acting in “bad faith,” and it is time to get a lawyer involved.
Resolving Title Insurance Defects And Disputes
The reason title insurance exists is to protect the title holder when defects or disputes arise. However, if disputes or defects crop up during a real estate transaction, the insurance company is not required to act quickly to keep the sale moving along. If you do not have a clear title, most lenders will simply refuse to fund the purchase of your property. At Hershorin & Henry, LLP, we can help you get results quickly. Our real estate attorneys have helped sellers resolve title defects and disputes for more than 17 years. We understand the nuances of the local market and how to resolve issues quickly. If a title dispute or defect is holding the sale of your property, contact us today to keep the sale moving along.
