DO NOT LET AN INSURANCE COMPANY DENY YOU OR YOUR BUSINESS COVERAGE OR BENEFITS WITHOUT CONTACTING AN ATTORNEY

“My family was referred to Michael Young by an attorney friend in Austin. My elderly mother was involved in a federal court lawsuit involving over a million dollars of life insurance proceeds. Michael filed important motions and the other side responded by agreeing to a settlement very favorable to my mother. My family was very pleased with Michael's aggressive representation of my mother's interests and his prompt responses to our questions. I would recommend Michael and his firm  to anyone involved in a dispute regarding life insurance benefits or the distribution of an estate." Rafael S., Hunt County.

Helping Businesses and Individuals Obtain Coverage and Benefits

Texas Insurance Dispute Lawyers

Insurance companies regularly dispute the coverage details of individuals and small business policyholders when they need it the most. Other times there are competing claims to life insurance proceeds.

Some of the coverage problems that can arise involve: 

Life Insurance

Sometimes multiple people claim the right to life insurance proceeds. Other times, the insurance company wrongfully finds creative reasons to deny payment to the beneficiary.  It is important to evaluate these issues under both Texas and federal law. Often, suit should be filed against the insurance company or an internal appeal filed under ERISA if the policy was purchased through an employer.

A good insurance litigation attorney is an essential asset in collecting the full amount of coverage from an insurance policy.

 Insurance Bad Faith

An insurance company owes a standard of care to a policy holder. If an insurance company breaches its contract with a policy holder, the policy holder may have a cause of action which in Texas is called insurance bad faith. This is an action against an insurance company where the insurance company has without proper cause:

  • Wrongful Denial of a Claim
  • Unreasonable Delay in Paying Benefits
  • Unreasonable Cancellation of a Policy
  • Failure to Conduct a Reasonable Investigation
  • Rescission of Coverage
