Enforcing insurance policies against insurance companies for money which is rightfully yours
Insurance companies sometimes use loopholes in their policies to avoid providing coverage to injured and damaged insureds. At Lowther Johnson Attorneys at Law, LLC, we work to hold insurance companies accountable and force them to pay pursuant to the coverage you purchased.
Types of insurance coverage disputes
Insurance law in Missouri is complicated and insurance coverage litigation takes a variety of forms. Some of the most common situations in which insurance coverage litigation is necessary are:
- Refusal to pay first party benefits – When an insurance company refuses to pay your property damage claim, health insurance claim, uninsured motorist coverage claim, underinsured motorist coverage claim, wrongful death benefit claim, or alleges you have not sufficiently established the necessary activities of daily living (ADLs).
- Vexatious refusal to pay litigation – When an insurance company not only refuses to pay your claim, but behaves in a manner which is so unfair it should be penalized for its poor business practices.
- Refusal to defend and indemnify a third party claim – When an insurance company refuses to defend and indemnify you in the event you have a claim made against you or a lawsuit filed against you. This can occur in situations involving auto accidents, other personal injury, property damage, or directors’ and officers’ liability.
- Bad faith litigation and Mo. Rev. Stat. § 537.065 litigation – When an insurance company fails to protect you from harm’s way by putting its interests ahead of yours. The protections afforded by Mo. Rev. Stat. § 537.065, which permit Contracts to Limit Recovery, may help you avoid personal liability and force the insurance company to properly defend and indemnify you.
- Declaratory judgment coverage litigation – When an insurance company has agreed to defend you but only pursuant to a reservation of rights (ROR). Missouri law gives you various options to protect your bottom line and require the insurance company to treat you properly, including hammer letters, the lifting of applicable policy limits.
