Bad Faith Insurance Lawyer in St. Petersburg/St. Pete and Tampa
Talk to a Bad Faith Insurance Attorney in the Tampa Bay Area
When you find your insurance claim was wrongfully denied by an insurance company, you may be the victim of bad faith claims practices. When an insurance company commits bad faith, it can be punished under the law by having to pay punitive damages. If you are the victim of insurance bad faith in Florida, contact the insurance bad faith attorneys of John V. Tucker to make sure you get the most money out of your claim.
There are two types of bad faith, depending on the kind of case you have. If the insurance company’s bad faith involves a wrongful denial of claim you have made under your own insurance policy, that is often called “first party bad faith.” Our firm frequently sees this type of bad faith when disability insurance claims are wrongfully denied. You may also be the victim of a type of insurance bad faith in Florida called “common law bad faith” when an insurance company wrongfully refuses to settle a claim you made against someone else’s insurance policy. We commonly see these types of bad faith claims come up in auto accident cases involving significant injuries when the insurance adjuster for the at-fault driver’s auto insurance company wrongfully refuses to settle the claim.
