Bad Faith Insurance Lawyer in Sacramento

Don’t Let Insurance Companies Mistreat You

Filing an insurance claim Insurers often act in “bad faith” when they deny, delay or under-evaluate claims. As Sacramento bad faith insurance attorneys with years of experience, we are well qualified to represent individuals and businesses in these insurance disputes.

In every policy of insurance, there is an “implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing.” A breach of this implied covenant is commonly known as “bad faith.”

The following are examples of “bad faith” insurance:

  • Refusing to pay the full amount due to the beneficent
  • Delaying payment
  • Using loopholes to deny payment
  • Attempting to confuse the beneficiary with complicated language

At Miller Injury Attorneys, much of our insurance bad faith representation relates to water damage and toxic mold claims. Homeowners’ policies often exclude coverage for mold, while providing coverage for water damage. When water damage occurs, insurance companies often wait until mold begins to grow – often as quickly as 48 hours – to deny the claim.

Our Insurance Defense Experience & Perspective

Because we have handled cases from both perspectives, we are better able to see each side’s strengths and weaknesses. We develop insurance bad faith case strategies that take these strengths and weaknesses into account.

We represent businesses and individuals facing insurance bad faith litigation related to many different types of insurance including:

  • Health insurance
  • Life insurance
  • Disability insurance
  • Homeowners insurance
  • Renters insurance

Liability

Liability for insurance bad faith is just not based on a denial of the claim, but can also include delays in making payments, unreasonable investigations, paying less than the full amount owed, taking unreasonable coverage positions, and focusing on exclusions in the policy instead of the coverages afforded. Under California law, insurance policy provisions affording coverage are broadly and liberally interpreted in favor of insurance coverage. On the other hand, insurance policy exclusions are interpreted narrowly and in a limited fashion.

  • I put my trust in John Miller and took all of his advice.

    “I contacted John Miller for help after trying to negotiate with two parties that had created a nightmare for me in my home purchase. From the very initial contact, John was knowledgeable of the different legal aspects involved. John let me know from the start that this could be a long process to resolve. I appreciated John's honesty and that John made no false promises. John negotiated settlements for me that allowed me to be made "whole". This was something I could never have been able to do on my own. I put my trust in John Miller and took all of his advice. I have also had the opportunity to get to know John and found him to be a very caring man, who wants to help people. I highly recommend him to anyone searching for an attorney to represent them. He was a Godsend to me. Barbara”
