San Antonio Insurance Claim Lawyer

Despite oversight by the Texas Department of Insurance, national and regional insurers often treat their policyholders in bad faith by denying claims, restricting coverage or refusing to provide a defense and indemnity for a claim brought against a policyholder.

Insurance policyholders lose millions of dollars each year to insurance companies that deny legitimate claims. A big reason why insurance companies deny these claims is because only 5 to 10 percent of policyholders bother to hire a lawyer to fight for what they rightly are owed.

The Law Offices of Bruce J. Mery, J.D., M.B.A., in San Antonio, Texas, has substantial knowledge of insurance bad faith lawsuits and wrongful denial of insurance claims. For more than 32 years, our law firm has fought for victims of unfair claim denials or other insurance claims practices.

Insurance bad faith can occur in conjunction with auto insurance, health insurance, uninsured/underinsured motorist insurance, life insurance, homeowners' insurance, medical malpractice insurance and disability insurance.

When an insurance company fails to comply with its duties under the Texas Insurance Code or fails to pay a claim timely, the insured may be entitled to statutory penalties, treble damages and attorney fees.

Insurance bad faith behavior includes:

  • Failure to investigate a claim in a proper and reasonable manner
  • Withholding benefits without cause
  • Delaying payment of claims for unreasonable length of time
  • Denying coverage
  • Denying payment on claims
  • Underpaying claims
  • Undervaluing a claim
  • Unfairly refusing to settle and/or reimburse claims
  • Abusive or unreasonable claims process
  • Cancellation of insurance policy unjustly
