Receiving Full Payment After Insurance Bad Faith Practices
When an insurance company acts in bad faith in its handling of your claim, they are not only cheating you out of the benefits that you deserve, but they are also violating the ethics of business practices and are breaching a legal contract that you have entered into. At Brasher Law Firm, PLLC, our Beaumont, Houston and Lake Charles bad faith insurance lawyers believe that you have the right to seek punitive damages for the wrongful and dishonorable actions of an insurance company.
When you hire a lawyer at our firm, you are retaining quality representation from a team of highly qualified legal professionals who know what it takes to win.

How Can We Maximize Your Compensation?
When you pursue a bad faith claim, you are typically looking to recover the settlement that your insurance company has promised you through your policy. However, our attorneys know that you have the right to extra contractual damages, meaning that you can recover compensation beyond the amount to which you are entitled in your contract. With the help of Brasher Law Firm, PLLC, we can help you fight for punitive damages, stand up to insurance companies and penalize them for their actions.
Punitive damages may be attainable for the following bad faith practices:
- Improper claim processing procedure: Insurers are supposed to follow certain protocol from start to finish when they receive a claim. If they do not stick to the certain steps that are required, they are negligent in conducting their business in good faith.
- Payment delays: If a claim is legitimate, it should be investigated thoroughly and paid as soon as is reasonably possible. There are certain circumstances that may take longer, but an insurance company may wrongfully delay payment for the sake of manipulation.
- Failure to investigate the claim: If an insurer is negligent in their investigation or fails to conduct an investigation altogether, this could be grounds for bad faith and susceptible for punitive damages for violating contractual obligations.
- Denial of the claim: If a provider denies your claim and fails to provide sufficient, rational, and legitimate reasoning, they are in direct violation of your contract and are denying you the benefits for which you have paid and are lawfully entitled to collect.
It is our mission to maximize compensation for our clients. We are prepared to aggressively fight on your behalf to seek punitive damages for bad faith practices, especially if they have caused you additional financial burdens or undue emotional distress.

I couldn’t understand why my insurance company underpaid me for the damage to my house. Rather than look for damage at my home, their experts came in and found excuses not to pay for my damage. My home was a total loss, but the insurance company only offered me 1/3 of my policy benefits before I hired Clint Brasher. Once Clint started litigating for me, the insurance company paid the full policy.Phyllis Wheelerhomeowner in Beaumont, Texas
Our claim was complicated by the fact that our Declarations page did not correctly state the coverages for our commercial buildings. Without your firm, we had gotten nowhere with the insurance company or agent. With the help of The Brasher Law Firm, we not only received the money we needed to fix our buildings, but a little more. I have no problem recommending your firm to anyone with an insurance dispute.Glenda ThompsonSecretary/Treasurer of Snappy’s Express Mart (relating to Snappy’s Convenience Store and Mini Storage Units)
