Insurance Disputes

The last thing you need now is a hassle from the insurance company. Without an experienced lawyer representing your case, you can be sure that the insurance company will dispute your claim and work to reduce your compensation as much as possible.

Many insurance providers are fair in many cases, but this is not the case when you have a high-value claim. At Schmitt Mulhern, LLC, our Kansas City insurance lawyers understand how frustrating it can be when the insurance company attempts to deny or limit your claim. We have over 75 years of combined legal experience, in which we have learned the tactics of insurance companies and their defense teams. We can help you counter their tactics and maximize your recovery compensation.

You have enough to deal with considering your injuries, the pain you may be suffering and the fact your life has suddenly been disrupted.

We fight on behalf of Missouri and Kansas victims who have suffered injuries and are having a difficult time dealing with the insurance company. Call us to schedule a FREE consultation with an attorney at 816-787-0145.

Don't Handle Your Insurance Dispute Alone. We Will Secure Your Compensation And Relieve You Of The Legal Burdens.

It can seem like an uphill battle when you are involved in a dispute with an insurance company. However, there are laws designed to protect consumers, whether against bad faith claims, denial of a claim or slow payment.

Today, many insurance companies try to cut costs at every corner. Unfortunately, these cuts are often at the consumer's expense. Like other companies, insurance providers are focused first and foremost on protecting their own profits and interests. Agents are trained early on regarding tactics to use in an effort to undervalue customers' claims, deny coverage, etc.

An insurance dispute is something you should not have to face when you are trying to heal and put your life back on track. Our Kansas City-based attorneys manage insurance disputes and denied insurance claims on behalf of victims throughout Missouri and Kansas. We obtain maximum compensation values for past, present and future damages and losses.

When Should You File A Bad Faith Insurance Claim?

You may be entitled to file a claim against the insurance company when coverage has been denied or limited without justification or sufficient notification. Essentially, an insurance company may be violating your rights as a policyholder or "acting in bad faith." Under the law, insurance companies must live up to the agreements they enter into with customers.

Some of the most common bad faith insurance claims include:

  • Undervaluing a claim intentionally
  • Stonewalling or unreasonable delay in payment of claims
  • Denying claims without justifiable or reasonable cause
  • Failing to review a claim within a reasonable time period
  • Failing to properly investigate a claim
  • Denying a claim due to vague or unreasonable interpretation of the policy

Perhaps your insurance company has informed you that your losses are excluded from your policy, or offered you a settlement which is far from substantial in covering the damage you have suffered. Whether your claim has been denied, the insurance company is slow to file your claim or you are facing other issues, we can help you.
