Insurance Bad Faith Lawyers Serving Clients Across the United States

We buy insurance to protect ourselves, our families or our businesses against catastrophic events such as fires, natural disasters, auto accidents or disabling injuries. When the unthinkable happens, we turn to that insurance policy to pay for these losses and make us whole. In too many cases, the insurer denies the claim, agrees to pay only a portion of the true value of the claim, or delays payment for months or even years. These actions can compound your problems and lead to additional financial problems.

The Los Angeles insurance law attorneys of Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP, represent individuals and businesses whose insurance companies failed to provide the coverage or defense specified in their insurance policies. We have won numerous multimillion-dollar verdicts and settlements for victims of insurance bad faith, including cases involving:

  • Failure to pay valid disability claims, property damage claims, and business insurance claims
  • Failure to defend against lawsuits (failure to indemnify as required in business policies)
  • Failure to settle within the stated policy limits
  • Insurance agent or broker negligence

Our experienced trial attorneys have prevailed in cases involving life insurance, homeowners insurance and general commercial liability insurance. We have achieved numerous multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements for doctors, lawyers and other professionals who were wrongfully denied the benefits of their private disability insurance policies. We have taken legal action against UNUM Group, Paul Revere Life Insurance, Farmers, State Farm, Allstate, Travelers, and 20th Century, among others.

Recovering Punitive Damages for Insurance Bad Faith

An insurance policy is a contract between the insured and the insurer. Insurance bad faith is a breach of that contract. There are many reasons why insurance bad faith is particularly egregious. Consequently, when insurance companies engage in bad faith, they can sometimes be compelled to pay punitive damages for their conduct.

Attorney Mark Quigley leads our practice in this field. He is one of the only attorneys in the United States who takes on the UNUM group. He has obtained numerous multimillion dollar verdicts against this company. Recently, he obtained a $4.2 million dollar verdict in the case Kieffer vs. UNUM. This verdict included $3 million in punitive damages.
