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.

The Chicago class action lawyers at Harvey L. Walner & Associates have more than 35 years of experience handling class action cases, including many cases involving insurance fraud. We have experience with just about any type of insurance fraud you may have suffered from, including unscrupulous practices involving:

NFL Seating Class Action Suit Rejected

Chicago, Illinois

Judge Barbara Lynn has denied class action status on a claim made by people who had tickets to Super Bowl XLV, but were unable to sit in their seats due to an inability to finalize temporary seating at the stadium. According to Justice Lynn, the class represented was too small and the damages suffered by each claimant could vary wildly, making it best for individual plaintiffs to bring suit against the NFL.

Attorneys for the plaintiffs were seeking a full refund of ticket prices for each member of the suit along with economic damages resulting from travel, time off work, lodging, and related expenses. The NFL has offered ticket holders who did not get to see the game compensation for many of these things already, but the class action suit would have sought to increase the award for participating claimants.

What is a Class Action Lawsuit?

Chicago, Illinois

In the event that a number of plaintiffs are filing similar lawsuits against a corporation, government entity, or even an individual, the courts may consolidate the claims into a single class action lawsuit. This is done for a number of reasons including saving time and resources, and is often of particular benefit to plaintiffs as it can maximize settlements in cases where individual damages may not have resulted in a jury trial.

If you believe you have cause to join or file a class action lawsuit, please contact The Walner Group or call (877) 925-6375 today to schedule a free consultation with one of our Chicago area attorneys.
