Understanding Insurance Bad Faith

Ideally, your insurance policy should protect you in your time of need. But the reality is that insurance companies do not always act ethically or legally. In fact, they may act in bad faith to protect their own profits – and deny or underpay your legitimate claim.

If you are involved in an insurance dispute over disability, life, long-term care or death and dismemberment benefits, our insurance law attorneys can investigate your case for bad faith actions on the part of the insurer.

Disability Benefits Through Colorado PERA

Our firm is the most experienced law firm in the state in handling Public Employees’ Retirement Association (PERA) disability claims and denials, as well as appeals and litigation in these matters. We can use our knowledge of the PERA system to help you get the benefits you need.

Thanks for working with me and I do appreciate what you’ve been able to do for me. I know that I would not be where I am, had I not hired you!

I HIGHLY recommend Mr. McDermott and his team. I am disabled and my LTD company was trying everything to drop me from their coverage. I believe Mr. McDermott and his team saved me.
