Nobody likes paying insurance premiums, but we do it so that we will be protected if something goes wrong. We believe that if a tree falls on our house, our homeowner’s insurance will pay for a new roof. If we are in a car crash with an uninsured driver, our uninsured motorist policy will cover the damages. And if we are diagnosed with a serious illness, our health insurance will pay for treatment, no matter how costly. So what do you do when an insurance company refuses to pay out on a policy? What if they have not denied your claim, but seem to be taking too long to issue the check? When an insurance company refuses to uphold their end of the contract you have both agreed to, you need the help of a bad faith insurance attorney. In Oklahoma, you need Attorney Scott Ray.
Scott Ray Brings Unmatched Experience to These Cases
Who better to represent you against an insurance company than a former insurance company defense attorney? Our attorney worked for the insurance industry for 17 years. During his time there, he learned how insurance companies think, how they approach insurance disputes, and what legal strategies they use when they are accused of acting in bad faith. When you hire him to represent you in a bad faith insurance case, he will use this knowledge to fight back against these tactics and get you the payout you deserve.
What to Do When Your Insurance Company Pushes Back or Ignores You
You may have had positive interactions with your insurance companies in the past. In fact, you may have had pleasant conversations with representatives as you paid your premiums over the years. However, if they turn on you when you need them most, our attorney advises you to do the following:
- Start documenting your interactions. Even before anything goes wrong, you should take notes during your phone calls with the insurer. Keep all letters, including copies of documents you send them and documents they send you. This way, if something does go wrong, you have a paper trail from the beginning.
- Keep track of the damages. Make a note of all of your costs related to the emergency. If there are additional damages because of delayed payment, be sure to keep track and save all receipts.
- Call Scott Ray immediately. When you first suspect that your insurance company is acting in bad faith, pick up the phone and call our Lawton firm right away. The sooner Attorney Scott Ray gets involved, the faster he may be able to resolve the dispute in your favor.
You have nothing to lose by calling our office as soon as your insurance company ticks you off. If we feel like you have grounds for a bad faith claim, we can jump right in and get started.
Insurance Company Disputes Are Unfair Fights
If you have the misfortune of dealing with a disreputable insurance company, you can be sure they believe they have the upper hand. After all, they have a team of lawyers behind them whose sole purpose is to find loopholes and legal tricks to get them out of paying on a claim. However, they don’t know that you have a secret weapon. When you work with Attorney Scott Ray, you have someone on your side who knows as much as they do and will fight to get you what you are owed.
