Find attorneys that pursue bad faith claims against insurance companies in or near District of Columbia.
If it can be established that the insurance company acted in bad faith, an attorney may be able to seek additional monetary penalties to compensate the victim.
If the conduct is particularly egregious, the award may even exceed the policy limits of the insurance claim.
Bad faith claims can arise after the insurance company either denies the claim or offer much less than what the claim is worth when that conduct violates an "implied covenant of fair dealing and good faith."
