Americans spend millions of dollars annually to purchase insurance policies that are supposed to protect them if they are injured, disabled, or in case they accidentally injure someone else.
Unfortunately, insurers frequently refuse to pay the legitimate claims of their policyholders. When this happens, the insured policyholder may need legal help to force the insurance company either to pay or face a claim of insurance bad faith that could cost the insurance company much more than the original claim.
