Cleveland Wrongful Insurance Claim Denial Attorneys
Ohio Insurance Claim Lawyers
One of the most common forms of insurance bad faith is the wrongful denial of insurance claims. An insurance company will simply deny a claim by saying that the policy did not cover the claimed event, alleging that the application was completed incorrectly or giving another justification. Regardless of that justification, however, legitimate unpaid insurance claims are a breach of contract and those companies should be held accountable for their actions.

Cleveland Wrongful Claim Denial Lawyers
Wrongful claim denials may happen with any type of insurance, including:
- Life insurance
- Auto insurance
- Homeowners’ insurance
- Disability insurance
- Commercial insurance
- Health insurance
In order to deny claims, carriers may use strategies such as post claim underwriting to change coverage after a claim is received, allegations of insurance fraud or requirements of proof of ownership not stipulated in a policy. Insurance companies may also fail to investigate claims properly, which can also result in a claims denial.
