Bad Faith Insurance Attorneys in Kansas City
Insurance companies have a contractual obligation to cover their insureds within the purchased policy limits. When an insurance company denies payment, delays payment, or unreasonably fails to settle claims within the policy limits, the insurance company is acting in bad faith. These insurance policy coverage disputes place unnecessary financial and emotional burdens on policy holders. Insurance companies profit by gambling with their insureds' money. At Dollar, Burns & Becker, L.C. our experienced attorneys represent insureds whose insurance companies act in bad faith.
If your insurance company has broken its contract with you by denying a claim or cancelling your policy, call 816-876-2600 to speak with a Kansas City insurance attorney or contact us online to set up a free consultation today.
Bad Faith Insurance Claims
You pay your insurance company a premium, in exchange for the promise that your insurance company will cover you (within the limits of the policy you purchased). However, insurance companies often act in bad faith, looking out for their bottom line—not their policy holders. Insureds suffer financially when they face a lawsuit without the protection promised by the insurance policy, and must pay expensive bills out of pocket as a result. Most people cannot afford the payments—the exact reason they purchased insurance. People face debt, bill collectors, bankruptcy, and emotional distress. We provide effective representation to insureds' whose insurance companies act in bad faith.
