Everyone purchases insurance with the expectation that their policies will provide financial security in the event of an unanticipated loss. However, insurance companies frequently refuse to pay claims that arise from the losses of their clients. Some insurance companies will find any excuse to deny coverage or delay a payment simply as a means of negotiating a settlement. Other times, insurance companies deny claims in outright bad faith.
If your insurance claim has been denied, it is important that you have an Illinois insurance dispute lawyer on your side. At the law firm of Drost, Gilbert, Andrew, & Apicella, our attorneys have the knowledge and experience that is necessary to stand up to large insurance companies and their well-financed legal teams.

Often, when an individual finds himself in an insurance dispute, the opposing sides are seriously mismatched. Insurance companies have vast wealth and expensive legal teams working on their behalf. They will eagerly dedicate their vast resources to limiting the amount of money that they have to pay on your legitimate claim. In order to get a fair deal, you need an aggressive insurance dispute lawyer.
If an insurance company has asked you to sit for an “examination under oath” during the course of your insurance dispute, you will need the assistance of competent legal counsel. Before you accept any settlement from an insurance company, consult with an insurance dispute lawyer so that you will have a complete and accurate understanding of the merits of your claim and the amount of money that you may be giving up. If your insurance claim has been denied in bad faith, it is important that you understand your rights under the Illinois Insurance Act. You may be entitled to the entire amount of your coverage plus damages to compensate you for the bad faith denial of your claim.
Even when individuals act to protect themselves against losses by purchasing insurance, many losses still go uncompensated because insurances companies find an excuse to deny the claim. If you have a claim denied it is important to protect your rights. Contact Drost, Gilbert, Andrew & Apicella today to speak to an experienced insurance dispute attorney.
