Columbus Personal Injury Attorneys Bad Faith Insurance
Columbus, Dublin, New Albany and all of Ohio
We represented a man in his mid-forties who was injured in a motor vehicle collision caused by an uninsured driver. The man presented an uninsured motorist claim against his automobile insurance policy; however, the insurance company made little or no effort to settle the claim. Frustrated by the insurance company's inaction, the man's family lawyer referred the matter to Robert W. Kerpsack Co., L.P.A. We immediately filed suit against uninsured driver and the man's automobile insurance company. In accordance with the terms of the man's insurance policy, we obtained a default judgment against the uninsured driver. The insurance company maintained its refusal to pay the man's uninsured motorist claim; therefore, we sought a court order compelling the insurance company to pay the claim, in addition to pre-judgment interest, attorney fees, and court costs.
Insurance companies are mandated with providing fair and timely compensation for any valid claims against policies they have issued.
Unfortunately, some insurance companies do not take this responsibility seriously, attempting to underpay claimants, delay payments, and even to refuse to pay valid claims.
At Robert W. Kerpsack Co., L.P.A., we take these types of claim very seriously. If you or someone you love is dealing with an insurance company that is failing to act in good faith in paying your valid claim, contact us today. We'll schedule a free, personal consultation with you to review your case and evaluate your options.
