Representing You in Any Area of Insurance Claims

Insurance companies, unfortunately, are good at trying to avoid payouts by using tactics such as undervaluing your claim, denying the damage done, or even purposefully delaying the payout of your claim, leaving you anticipating a disbursement that is never going to come.

Our Louisiana insurance lawyers help with insurance claims involving:

Fortunately, you can employ our legal help for your Louisiana insurance dispute regardless of the type of claim it is. Getting assistance from an insurance lawyer can help you if you've had a claim wrongfully denied or if you think your insurance provider is utilizing bad faith practices—a word that describes any time an insurer is failing to fulfill their duties to customers.

Our insurance claim attorneys have had success and are familiar with the following:

  • First Party Insurance Claims
    An unexpected accident or disaster where you are entitled to financial reimbursement from your insurance company.
  • Business Insurance Claims
    The policy business owners' maintain if a natural disaster causes significant damage to their business. Providers often try to avoid paying out for disasters, as the devastation is so widespread and costly.
  • Residential Property Claims
    These policies are supposed to cover damage to your home, depending on location and coverage options chosen in your policy.
  • Bad Faith Insurance Claims
    These legal items refer to unfair tactics on behalf of the insurance provider. Insurance companies must not misrepresent facts or fail to provide a proper explanation for denial of coverage, for example.

Louisiana Insurance Claim FAQ

How Do Insurance Companies Try to avoid paying claims?

Some insurance companies use various strategies to try to avoid high payouts. They may unnecessarily delay a claim, asking for additional (and unnecessary) information or documentation, fail to return calls, or leave you waiting to get answers to your coverage questions. They may offer unfairly low settlements before you’ve had a chance to actually consider the full impact that your injuries or losses have had, or before you’ve talked to an attorney. They may retroactively cancel your policy or deny your claim outright by saying your losses are not covered. Insurance policies are full of tiny print and legalese, but this does not excuse companies from acting in good faith when handling your claim. Avoid the many immoral practices used by providers to take advantage of people like you—involve an experienced Louisiana insurance claim lawyer as soon as you can.

What legal rights do I have as an insurance policyholder in Louisiana?

As a policyholder or claimant, you have the right to be treated in a fair manner by the insurance provider. Insurance companies have a legal duty to act in good faith when investigating, managing, and paying claims. They cannot actively try to find reasons to deny a valid claim and cannot treat you unfairly through the process, taking advantage of your lack of in-depth knowledge of insurance claims.

Unfortunately, some Louisiana insurance companies violate their obligation to act in good faith. When they do, policyholders and claimants have the right to file suit. A bad faith lawsuit can help a wronged policyholder or claimant recover the full and fair value of their claim, plus additional damages.

The insurance adjuster offered me a settlement. Shouldn’t I just accept it?

Dealing with an insurance claim is not easy. The time after an accident, injury, or natural disaster will be difficult to navigate, and getting a settlement offer may seem like a blessing when you need it most. Even if the settlement seems reasonable, you should take a moment to make sure it’s truly in your best interests before you sign anything or deposit a check. Insurance companies are notorious for undervaluing claims. Instead of accepting the first settlement offer, involve an attorney who can review your policy, your claim, and the offer. There could be losses or expenses you haven’t considered yet, or additional coverage that you don’t know about. A competent lawyer can make sure the offer is reasonable. If it’s not, he or she can start negotiations to seek a fair and complete settlement—or take your case to court to be resolved by a judge.
