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
faith claim.

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.

Why Work With An Insurance Attorney?

Insurance policies are full of obscure terms that can be difficult or seemingly impossible to understand, and insurers often have strong incentives to deny potentially covered claims – or, even if the claim is covered, to drastically undervalue the cost of repairs. Properly understanding policy terms and insurer obligations is critical to determining whether an insurer has improperly refused to cover a loss or provide benefits. Our insurance attorneys are skilled at evaluating coverage, identifying policy benefits to which insureds are entitled, pinpointing insurer misconduct, working with experts, and holding insurers accountable when they act in bad faith to deny coverage or benefits.

Here’s what some of Levy | von Beck | Comstock | P.S. clients have to say.

Dave’s daily dedication, effective and solid research, understanding of detailed Washington construction law, and ability to work with all other attorneys ensured I had the strongest case possible. We settled without having to go to court and I couldn’t have been more satisfied with the outcome. 



Dave is exactly the lawyer I hoped to find. He was extremely knowledgeable about each aspect of my situation involving condo construction defects, contractors, and the homeowners association. Dave’s advice was thoughtful and practical and I believe that is what created a fairly quick and painless outcome.
