When Insurers Unreasonably Deny Claims Or Resist Judgments

In Oklahoma, as is true elsewhere, an insurance policy involves an implied covenant or duty of good faith and fair dealing. In other words, insurers should pay benefits under circumstances that are spelled out in their policies. To name a few examples, a serious car accident or fire should trigger a payout to the injured or surviving family members in a fatality case.

Unfortunately, many legitimate claimants in such cases in our state encounter resistance from insurance companies. They are then left to suffer unjust financial burdens in addition to their pain and suffering. At Whitten Burrage, our trial lawyers investigate and litigate cases in which insurers collect premiums but do not make good on the terms of their policies.

How We Pursue Justice Through Insurance Bad Faith Claims

Through the application of Oklahoma’s insurance bad faith laws, our attorneys work to hold insurers accountable for legitimate claims and judgments, such as when:

  1. Your home is damaged in a tornado or storm and the insurance company will not fairly reimburse you,
  2. Your own insurance company fails to pay you under or uninsured motorist coverage,
  3. Your own insurance company fails to pay you life insurance proceeds, and
  4. Any other first-party insurance coverage benefits that your own insurance company fails to properly pay.

This list includes just a sample of many such cases that can trigger insurance-related disputes. In the face of trouble with an insurer, an injured person or their lawyer should get legal advice. A skilled, accomplished attorney who regularly brings successful claims over bad faith insurance can be a highly effective ally. Attorneys at firms throughout Oklahoma look to Whitten Burrage to help them develop winning strategies when their clients’ insurance claims or judgments have been denied or reduced unfairly.

Complex Litigation Is Our Strength. Rely On Our Attorneys’ Experience.

Many people who experience insurance troubles after accidents and disasters make the mistake of trying to argue with insurance company representatives. It is easy for people to unknowingly hurt their own prospects by doing so. A case review by an experienced insurance bad faith lawyer is advisable.

At Whitten Burrage, such consultations are free for injured people as well as for their attorneys. To reach us in Oklahoma City, call 888-801-8682 or send an online inquiry.
