Insurance Fraud

Chicago, Illinois

Insurance policies provide you with important protection when an unexpected event leads to serious financial loss. In return for paying your monthly premiums, you should reasonably be able to expect that your insurance company will fulfill their responsibility and deliver the benefits established by your policy when these unfortunate events occur. However, many insurance companies will go to great lengths to limit your benefits on legitimate claims in order to protect their profit margin.

When insurance companies deal dishonestly with you after a catastrophic accident, unexpected illness, or natural disaster, the financial consequences for you and your family can be crippling. This type of behavior constitutes insurance fraud, and you may be entitled to recover compensation for any damages suffered.

Often, insurance fraud cases are handled as a class action case. This allows you to unite with other individuals who have suffered from similar fraudulent actions at the hands of the insurance carrier. By combining all of these claims into a class action case, it allows you to pool resources and increases your chances of holding the negligent insurance company liable for damages.
