Atlanta Auto Insurance Companies Acting in Bad Faith Alpharetta, GA

Taking a look at examples of bad faith can illustrate how an insurance company may treat you unfairly. When you have been injured in an auto accident, bills will role in for additional expenses. You will have medical costs while potentially suffering from loss of earnings. In the case of serious injury, you may also need to modify your home.

An insurance claim can cover many of the costs associated with an auto accident – including vehicle repair. When an insurance company drags its heels, you are left coping with all your additional bills. However, if your claim is handled unfairly, you may not recoup some or any of those costs.

Claim Delays

Avoiding paying out claims is a common practice for insurance companies. Any delays will impact you financially. Any evidence that you have to support your claim can diminish in strength. It is for these reasons and more that insurance companies should complete claims within a reasonable time frame, according to law.

Inadequate Investigation

Insurance companies cannot legally or deliberately cut corners when investigating your auto accident claim. Not considering relevant evidence, ignoring key facts and discounting a medical diagnosis are some examples of bad faith. You have a right to a fair investigation in the state of Georgia.

Refusal to Defend a Lawsuit

When your insurance company refuses to engage with any legal claim involving liability, you are being misrepresented. This situation can result in you paying out-of-pocket expenses in a legal dispute. A court can determine that you are the at-fault party, even if the facts are technically on your side.

Diminished Value Claim

Another way that insurance companies can act in bad faith relates to diminished value claims. If your vehicle is not fairly assessed, you may receive a payout that is lower than what the vehicle is worth. You have a right to dispute the assessment, with the help of a diminished value appraiser.

If you are not receiving fair treatment from an insurance company, Wreck Check Atlanta can provide support. We will conduct an impartial diminished value assessment to confirm the true worth of your vehicle. Call today to learn more.

  • Amazing! He told me early on how much money he was going to be able to get me and he was spot on. I paid a small fee to get thousands more in my diminished value claim than the insurance company was offering. Further, RJ was very easy to get in contact with. He responded to my emails almost instantly. The whole process went by so quickly once he was involved. I would recommend him to anyone.

  • My insurance company offered me 37 bucks in diminished value. My case was slightly complex due to the insurance companies appraiser being stubborn and difficult. It had to be escalated to an unbiased umpire for a final binding decision. I wasn't expecting for it to go this far however it did. I ended up getting close to 3K back. RJ is extremely professional and he fights for you. The only issue to me is his preferred method of communication which is by email. Which i became accustomed to because he responds more prompt that way. He generated a 30 to 40 page report. He works extremely hard and for that I'm appreciative.

  • RJ is Awesome! He got me 10x what the insurance company offered on a 2 year old accident. Also, I traded the car in 7 months ago so I no longer had it. If I could share this experience with every person I see I would. I’ve already told several family and friends, it’s really just unbelievable to me! If you have any question what so ever, I promise his fee will be the best $275 you’ll ever spend!!
