Illinois advocate handles a wide range of claims

Dedicated litigator assists insureds with claim denials
When you buy insurance, you are entering into a contract with your carrier to supply the coverage you've paid for according to the terms of the policy. If your carrier fails to honor your claim based on those terms, I understand the stress it causes and will guide you through the process of holding the company accountable. There are several ways in which insurance companies act in bad faith toward insureds:
- Failing to adequately investigate, approve or deny the claim in a timely manner
- Failing to provide a reasonable explanation for the denial of a claim
- Refusing to pay a claim where liability is reasonably established
If you believe your carrier is denying a claim without merit, I can often help you reach a favorable outcome through a negotiated settlement. If litigation becomes necessary, I can sue for breach of contract and press your rights in court.
Knowledgeable attorney provides the skilled counsel you deserve
Insurance companies are in business to make money, so their bottom line is to pay out as little as possible. Insurance policies are also complicated documents that many policyholders fail to completely understand, and that confusion only contributes to the stress you may feel when your claim is denied. I can alleviate some of that stress by carefully analyzing the terms of your policy and challenging your carrier on a solid legal basis. As an experienced negotiator, I am often able to press insurers to honor their policy obligations for my clients. But if litigation becomes necessary, you can rest assured that I will vigorously defend your rights in court to get you the best possible results.
