People pay for insurance so that they will have security against a loss. Such people use their hard earned money to pay premiums and expect insurance companies to honor their end of the bargain. The unfortunate truth, however, is that insurance companies are profit-motivated companies, and claims are typically denied to protect their bottom line.
If your insurance company has wrongfully denied a claim, you may bring a case for bad faith against them. Our personal injury attorneys assist people throughout Travis County, and elsewhere in Texas, with such matters. Consider working with one of our Austin bad faith insurance lawyers to maximize your chances of success.

Austin Attorneys Representing Wrongly Denied Insurance Claims
Insurance companies must act in “good faith” when they agree to insure a customer. They may not require an excessive number of estimates, they must promptly and properly investigate claims, and they must be knowledgeable of applicable laws and regulations. Companies who violate these obligations may be sued for acting in bad faith while handling your claim. Contacting a skilled lawyer may be critical to your efforts of recovering damages.
Our Austin attorneys aggressively assist those who have been the victims of bad faith insurance. We will use your initial consultation to analyze your policy and help you determine whether you have a viable case. If the insurance company does not settle, we will not hesitate to file a lawsuit.
Once the case is underway, we will use discovery (i.e., the process by which information is gained from the other side) to obtain internal correspondences, memos, notes, and other information which shows bad faith on the insurance company’s part. We do not delay in taking such cases to trial and will ensure that you know what to expect during each step of the process.
The victims of bad faith insurance tactics have been wronged. To make matters worse, such a wrong was committed by an entity (the insurance company) which was supposed to be looking out for their interests. Dan Christensen is a former prosecuting attorney and JAG Corps officer who has been standing up for the rights of victims throughout his career. He provides a high level of personal attention in such matters. This includes a high level of communication with clients and ensuring that they are prepared as the case moves forward.
