Standing Up To Insurance Companies
The average person maintains many different types of insurance, paying premiums with the expectation that the benefits will be there when they need them. All too often, insurers refuse to pay a valid claim, or may breach a duty of good faith owed to the policyholder.
At the Philadelphia law firm of Young Ricchiuti Caldwell & Heller, LLC, we stand up to insurance companies on your behalf. Our attorneys have substantial experience in this complicated and ever-changing field of the law, obtaining six-, seven- and eight-figure verdicts and settlements in direct claims against insurers who have not met their obligations.
Attorneys Who Understand The Insurance Industry
Insurance companies make a profit by collecting premiums and limiting the amount of money they have to pay out for claims. Unfortunately for you, that could mean being a good customer for years and then being denied the very coverage you paid for.
We handle cases involving unfair claim denials, underpayment of claims and breach of duty to policyholders of:
- Auto insurance
- Health insurance
- Homeowners’ insurance
- Life insurance
In any of these circumstances, serious financial harm may occur and a legal claim against the insurer can arise. Where health insurance is involved, managed care interference with a patient’s medical care can sometimes cause physical harm to a patient.
In addition to representing individuals and families, our attorneys have written amicus curiae (“friend of the court”) briefs in state and federal courts, including the U.S. Supreme Court. Our attorneys have also taught other lawyers how to effectively represent their clients in these cases.
