Oklahoma City Attorneys Confront Insurance Bad Faith

Help when your insurance company unreasonably denies coverage

Every insurance company owes its policyholders the duty of good faith and fair dealing. When an insurer acts in bad faith by unreasonably denying claims that it is contractually obligated to pay, the frustrated policyholder can sue for damages over and above the amount of the denied claim. At Ryan Bisher Ryan & Simons, our attorneys represent policyholders in coverage disputes and bad faith claims. There is no charge for discussing your situation with us, and our success rate for handling bad faith claims is outstanding.

How you can tell if your insurance company has acted in bad faith

Bad faith is the unfair handling of a policyholder's claim. Examples of bad faith include:

  • Inadequately investigating a claim
  • Failing to investigate promptly
  • Unreasonably delaying payment on a claim
  • Insisting that the policyholder take unnecessary steps
  • Failing to offer a reasonable settlement
  • Concealing facts
  • Requiring the policyholder to collect from a third party before paying underinsured motorist benefits
  • Intentionally misreading policy provisions
  • Attempting to deceive the policyholder
  • Failing to disclose policy benefits to the policyholder

You can resolve your bad faith dispute without upfront attorney fees

Some insurance companies treat policyholders unfairly because they think they can get away with it. Although juries across the country are willing to hold insurance companies accountable for illegal conduct, many frustrated policyholders mistakenly believe they’d have to pay to sue their insurance company. Nothing could be further from the truth.

For bad faith cases, we do not charge attorney fees for personally consulting with you about your case. Because we believe that protecting your rights is important, Ryan Bisher Ryan & Simons finances your litigation, and you only pay our fee after we’ve recovered damages for you. If we are unable to obtain compensation on your behalf, you do not owe us a fee. Not only do our personal injury attorneys have the resources to prosecute your case, but we also have the experience, skill and dedication necessary to win.

Your bad faith case is worth much more than your original claim

Laws against bad faith are intended to discourage unlawful and unethical behavior in the insurance industry. For that reason, the law allows you to collect damages in addition to your unpaid claim for:

  • Financial losses caused by the bad faith conduct
  • Pain and suffering
  • Damage to your reputation
  • Punitive damages
