Insurance Companies and the Law
Insurance companies have a duty to act in good faith and to deal fairly with their insured, and it is the job of Private Disability Insurance Attorneys like Brent Adams to ensure that they do. (Learn about insurance bad faith.) When insurance companies fail to follow through with the benefits and coverage they promised, especially when such failure is aggravated, the insurance companies may be liable for punitive damages. Punitive damages are imposed solely for the purpose of punishing, making a point and setting an example. The failure of insurance companies to do what they are supposed to do should not go unpunished.
In order to put more money in our clients' pockets, we always pursue punitive damages when the facts justify such. We feel so strongly in our capability to get you results that we will fight for you on a contingency fee basis. That means that you do not owe us any attorney fees at all until we get you your money. If we don't win, you don't pay. It's as simple as that.
Employee Retirement Income Security Act
Many insurance companies that issue short and long term disability insurance policies deviously attempt to try and hide behind a federal law known as the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). If the ERISA law applies to your case, you cannot get a traditional trial in court with a jury under most circumstances.
At Brent Adams & Associates, we work hard to try to exclude an insurance claim from the ERISA law so that you can get a full and fair trial by jury. In those cases where the ERISA law does truly apply, we will still always work as hard as we can to present an effective claim for you, and at the very least have your claim heard by a Federal Judge.
