Insurance companies are often averse to paying claims.
They sometimes will use every argument and technical device to avoid paying claims or to pay as little as possible. We have to fight them like tigers. Fortunately there are many laws and regulations on the books that impose heavy duties on insurers and that help offset the imbalance, including insurance bad faith. Please note the $137,000 jury verdict we achieved against Allstate Insurance Company for failure promptly or thoroughly investigate and pay a fire loss claim. This is an area fraught with many legal and investigative technicalities.
