Insurance Bad Faith
Bad faith claims usually arise out of a dispute between the insurance company and a claimant over the obligations of the insurance company to pay a claim under the terms of the policy contract. Insurance companies have a duty under the law to deal fairly and in good faith with their clients.
Wilson Kehoe Winingham has tried or settled several cases against insurance companies for unfair denial of large claims, ranging from fire losses and roof collapse to disability claims made by physicians and other professionals. Firm partner Bill Winingham has argued before the Indiana Supreme Court to continue to ensure that Indiana holds insurance companies accountable for their lack of good faith in denying claims.
