Any Way to Avoid a Claim
Accusing you of a material misrepresentation on your insurance policy application is one of the myriad ways that insurers avoid paying otherwise valid claims. When you make a claim for damages, your carrier will search for any possible reason to deny or underpay you.
Material misrepresentation often happens something like this: In filling out your insurance application, you make an innocent mistake. When you later file a claim for damages, your insurer will review your application and may claim that the innocent mistake on your application is actually a material misrepresentation. Your company will then try to void or cancel your policy to avoid paying the benefits you are owed.
Assistance With Misrepresentation Defense and Bad Faith Claims
When our law firm represents you, we will thoroughly review your application, your policy and your claim for benefits. We will help defend you against the accusation of material misrepresentation by:
- Showing that you did not intentionally misrepresent information on your application
- Showing that any omission in your application is a simple mistake
If your company accused you of material misrepresentation without a good basis, we may be able to file a bad faith insurance claim on your behalf. Our lawyers are experienced litigators who have successfully tried many insurance disputes.
