Insurance companies have mastered their tactics. They delay a claim in the hopes that a person will be frustrated into settling for less than they deserve. In the worst instances, they deny valid claims because they’re hoping a claimant won’t contest it. These strategies have created a business model that’s frustrating for claimants but profitable for insurance companies. It’s our duty to fight against these unethical strategies for clients, no matter how much the insurance company tries to overwhelm us. Hiring Arnold & Itkin means telling your insurance company that their tactics won’t be tolerated. We investigate claims, hire our own experts, and bring the fight to them.
Our Insurance Lawyers Level the Playing Field Between Claimants & Industry Giants
We pay premiums on insurance policies with a simple expectation: our insurance company will offer relief when disaster strikes. Friendly slogans, charming commercials, and slick promises have made it easy to trust our insurers. Yet, when we need them most, insurance companies often don’t hold up their end of the deal. When someone is struggling to receive a fair settlement, they turn to our team.
We help with insurance claims and cases involving:
- Car accidents
- Fire damage claims
- Business interruption claims
- Water and flood damage
- Bad faith insurance practices
- First party insurance claims
- Hurricane insurance claims
- Tornado damage claims
At Arnold & Itkin, our team has seen every tactic insurance companies use to unfairly delay or deny valid claims. If your claim has stalled, we have experience getting insurers to pay fairly. We’ve stood up to the largest insurers in the nation and have recovered more than $10 billion in verdicts and settlements. We fight to level the playing field against large insurance companies, no matter what.
“They were very helpful in me evolving through this tragedy, basically. The stress that I was under—they made me feel relaxed. I know that if I called them now and I needed something, they would help me get whatever I needed.” Donna Deason
We get results by caring about our clients. When we learn about what our clients have gone through before calling us, the fight becomes personal. Insurance companies are massive, and no one deserves to face their bad faith practices on their own. Having our firm take your case means it’ll have the care, resources, and attention that’s only possible from a law firm that’s recovered billions for clients.
When an insurance company unfairly denies a claim, the process basically follows a script. They’re slow to respond, provide lowball estimates, and send clients in endless loops to frustrate them. Hiring our lawyers shows your company that their tactics won’t be tolerated. Helping people restore their lives after an accident or disaster is what we do, and we never settle for less than the best for them. When an insurance company says it can’t do more, we step in to tell them they have to.

Successful insurance claim lawsuits require research, dedication, and experience. We pour the resources into cases that are needed for success.

What If My Insurance Company Is Delaying or Denying My Claim?If your insurance is delaying or denying a claim they should be honoring, they might be acting in bad faith. Insurance companies purposefully delay or deny valid claims because they stand to profit more the longer a claim takes. Additionally, insurers hope that making the claims process frustrating will push a person to accept less than they’re owed. We're ready to be the advocate you need by leveling the playing field and letting your insurance company know that their tactics won’t work on your claim.
Do Insurance Companies Have a Time Limit for Responding?Yes, an insurance company has two weeks from the time a claim is made to respond to it. If they take longer than two weeks to respond to a claim, they’re acting in bad faith to the claimant. After responding to a claim, insurers are obligated to provide timely and reasonable updates. If you think that your insurer is taking too long to honor your claim, it’s time to call our team. Our insurance claim lawyers can advocate for your recovery and let your insurance company know that their tricks are unacceptable.
Should I Accept an Initial Offer from an Insurance Company?Accepting an initial offer might be a mistake. Often, insurance companies try to look like they’re doing the right thing by quickly offering compensation. Their hope is to get a person to accept less than they deserve and lose the ability to obtain additional compensation. Our insurance lawyers can look at your offer, investigate your claim independently, and hold your company to the compensation that you really deserve.
