Bad Faith Insurance

Bad Faith Insurance Litigators

Years of making monthly insurance payments, without a claim, leads us to believe that "all is well." When we have an accidental injury or loss, we are sometimes surprised to find that the insurance company will work very hard to deny benefits to which you are due.

Our attorneys at Treon & Shook, PLLC, hold the insurance companies accountable for their coverage of valid claims. Our AV-rated* attorneys have battled successfully against insurance companies including State Farm, Allstate, Farmers, Safeco and American Family. Attorney Steve Silverman represented insurance companies for several years and is keenly aware of insurance company tactics and policies.

During the Rodeo-Chediski fires of 2002, our law firm was in litigation with all of the major insurance companies on behalf of clients with damage from fire, smoke, water and mold. Clients were accused of fraud. Our attorneys prevailed and won a verdict of $1.6 million for a smoke damage case.

Insurance Denied? We Defend False Insurance Scam Accusations

Our lawyers have experience with the following types of insurance bad faith litigation:

  • Property loss from fire, smoke or water damage
  • Policyholders falsely accused of fraud
  • "Low ball" insurance offers for valid claims
  • "Slow ball" insurance offers for claims which require immediate attention (such as roof damage after a storm)
  • Inadequate investigation into a claim
  • Routine denial of a type of claim arising out of "catastrophic" or storm-related damage such as wildfire smoke damage

In addition to insurance bad faith litigation for homeowners' policies, we also represent clients who have been denied claims from health insurance, auto insurance, life insurance and disability insurance.
