Insurance Bad Faith and Fraud

Mississippi trial lawyers advocating for policyholders

When you are diagnosed with a serious illness or are in need of long-term care, you depend on your insurance company to be there and to help get you through difficult times. 

The attorneys of Langston & Langston, PLLC are ready to help individuals when insurance companies fail to live up to the terms of its policies and unreasonably delay or deny payment of valid claims. 

Insurance companies owe their policyholders a duty to act in good faith.  When that does not happen, it is called insurance bad faith and the insurance company can be forced to pay what it owes you under the policy.  If the insurance company's actions are grossly negligent or intentionally malicious toward you, you may be entitled to punitive damages. 

The following are some examples of bad faith insurance practices:

  • Delay in handling claims
  • Inadequate investigation
  • Failure to communicate with insured about an unpaid claim
  • Refusal to defend a lawsuit
  • Unfair denial of benefits to a policyholder
  • Threats against an insured
  • Unreasonable interpretations of an insurance policy
  • Failure to provide coverage contracted
  • Fraud by agents and insurance companies in denials and underpayments
  • Refusal to make a reasonable settlement offer
