When selling insurance policies, most insurers hold themselves out as having a friendly staff of helpful people to assist with any problem that might arise. Unfortunately, that rosy presentation isn’t always real. In fact, many insurers don’t maintain any staff whatsoever to handle claims. This problem is particularly prevalent among surplus lines insurers, and unfortunately, many business owners are unaware of the risks they face with a surplus lines insurance policy.
Because many so-called insurance companies are merely fronts for other companies or investors, they lack the employees and resources to properly investigate claims. This means when a policyholder submits a claim, many insurers simply hire an outsourced, third-party administrator or claims management company like Crawford to handle the claim. Crawford’s investigations are often the sole determining factor in claims resolution, so they’ve quickly gained a reputation among many policyholders and their representatives for their bad faith insurance tactics.
Policyholders have legal protection from these bad faith tactics under both the Texas Insurance Code and the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices-Consumer Protection Act (DTPA), which provide financial relief to consumers who are victims of deceptive, improper, or illegal practices. However, taking on a claims management company or an insurance company on your own can seem daunting, if not impossible.
If your business insurance claim has been grossly undervalued or completely denied based on a Crawford investigation, the attorneys at Raizner Slania can help. We have successfully dealt with Crawford in many of our cases, and our experienced trial attorneys can help you get the compensation you are entitled to under your policy.
