Has your Insurance Company Failed to Defend you from a Lawsuit in Arizona?

Scottsdale Lawyer Shane L. Harward has Experience with Failure to Defend Cases

Whether it is Farmers, State Farm, Nationwide, Allstate or some other insurer in Arizona, if your insurance company fails to put your interests above their own economic gains, you may be a victim of insurance bad faith. An insurance company may choose not to settle a claim when it wrongly believes that it can contest and win the lawsuit. When it does this, it may put your assets at risk of a verdict in excess of your insurance policy limits. This type of insurance company gambling can lead to devastating consequences for insurance policy holders.

Your insurance company may take a risk and win; they may save themselves money but there is no benefit for you. If they risk and lose, they may lose thousands or even millions of dollars. Considering that some insurance companies make billions of dollars annually, they can afford the risk. You can’t. If an excess verdict is awarded in a lawsuit related to your liability, you may be personally responsible for paying an astronomical amount of money to a plaintiff.

If you are in a circumstance in which you believe your insurance carrier has placed your rights below their economic interest, call 480-874-2918 to speak with Scottsdale Lawyer Shane L. Harward. Since 1995 Mr. Harward has been handling high-stakes and high-dollar cases involving issues of failure to defend and excess verdicts in Arizona.

An Insurance Company may put your Economic Well-Being at Risk

Your home, your vehicles, savings, businesses, and other assets may be at risk.

Your insurance company must adequately place your best interests ahead of its own profit-making goals or it may be breaching its duty of good faith and fair dealing. Your insurance company’s failure to defend you—the policyholder—if you are sued by a third party can result in an excess verdict. An Arizona insurance policyholder should never have to experience the financial catastrophe of an excess verdict because their insurance company failed to protect them.
