Bad Faith Insurance Claims in Philadelphia
We all use insurance companies in our daily lives and trust that they will be there for us in the unfortunate event that we need their services or protection. This is what we pay for. Unfortunately, insurance companies do not always live up to our expectations.
In the final count, many appear to take advantage of our trust. Although they are required by Pennsylvania law to pay claims properly and promptly, insurance companies frequently attempt to avoid their responsibilities.
If you have an insurance claim that you believe has been handled inappropriately, you may have the basis of a bad faith claim against that insurance company. The Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin P.C. represents the victims of bad faith insurance and makes them pay what they owe and then some.

An act of bad faith by an insurance company is essentially a breach of the contract you signed with your current insurance company. If this infringement takes place, the law seeks to reprimand insurance companies who have withheld benefits to policyholders.

Our attorneys have extensive experience representing victims of breached contracts with insurers and will fight for the compensation you deserve.
What Constitutes a Bad Faith Action by an Insurance Company?
Insurance companies are required to pay claims in both a proper and prompt manner. When they avoid doing so by discounting, delaying, or wrongfully denying payment of claims, they may very well violate the law. Those insured by these companies depend on them to meet their fairly and in good faith. Insurance companies owe the insured a high standard of care and fair dealing, which they may fail to meet through any of the following:
- Denial of a valid claim
- Unreasonable delay in paying a valid claim
- Settling a claim for much less than it is worth
- Termination of an insurance policy after a claim has been made
- Refusal to adequately defend a policyholder who is being sued
- Refusal to pay insurance benefits
