Top-Rated Bad Faith Insurance Attorneys
We regularly represent homeowners, condominium associations, and commercial building
owners who have property insurance claims stemming from a fire loss, water damage,
earthquake damage, structural collapse, or a variety of other casualty losses.
In addition to pursuing coverage under the policy, we pursue Bad Faith claims against insurance
companies based on:
- Poor Claim Handling
- Wrongful Denial of Coverage
- Other Misconduct
We have found that many insurers have corporate policies in place that are designed to save the
company money at the expense of the policyholder. Fortunately, there are laws in place,
including the Insurance Fair Conduct Act (IFCA) in Washington and other statutes and
regulations, that require insurers to act in good faith – and these laws provide additional remedies
for the policyholder whose insurer has not met its good-faith obligations. Remedies available
under IFCA include triple damages and recovery of your attorney fees if you prevail on a bad
When you file an insurance claim, you will be going up against a company that has huge legal
and financial resources, has its own best interests in mind, and makes its money by collecting
premiums, not by paying claims. Not every insurer commits bad faith, but you can rest assured
that insurance companies are not out there rewarding their adjusters and managers for ensuring
that every claim is paid quickly and fully. Also, many out-of-state insurers are unfamiliar with
Washington law, including IFCA and our claim handling regulations. So, they may be acting in a
way that, under our laws, creates liability for their conduct – including in situations where there
might not even be coverage for a claim.
We work tirelessly on behalf of our policyholder clients to pursue the remedies they deserve.
And we recommend you retain a qualified attorney early on to assist with your claim.
Remember, the insurer is in the business of handling claims and you (we hope) are not. Do not
let yourself suffer wrongful delays, denials, and small payouts from your insurer.
