Palatine Insurance Dispute Attorney


Schaumburg Insurance Coverage Lawyer for Disputes Involving Policies and Claims

Insurance policies provide individuals, families, and businesses with financial protection in cases where they suffer unexpected losses. This coverage can often be essential for addressing situations such as a person's death or the theft or destruction of property. Unfortunately, there are many cases where insurance companies do not provide a person or business with the proper coverage. A company may deny a claim for illegitimate reasons, it may undervalue a claim in order to minimize the amount paid out, or it may delay the claims process unnecessarily. To ensure that insurance companies will be held to their obligations under a policy, claimants can secure legal representation from an attorney who understands the legal issues involved in these cases and has experience resolving these matters successfully.

At Drost Gilbert Andrew & Apicella, our lawyers provide strong and effective legal representation when addressing matters related to insurance. Attorney Ken Apicella believes in standing up for the rights of those who make insurance claims and helping them address any attempts by insurance policies to avoid paying the benefits owed. He can advocate on behalf of an individual or business when negotiating a settlement with an insurance company, and if necessary, he is prepared to pursue litigation in court to force an insurer to meet its legal obligations.

Legal Help With Insurance Claims and Disputes

When making an insurance claim, a person or small business owner will often feel intimidated as they deal with insurance company personnel and lawyers. A policyholder may be concerned that saying the wrong thing or providing certain types of information will affect their ability to receive coverage. They may also be unsure about how to deal with the tactics an insurance company may use to limit the value of their claim or deny a claim altogether.

Attorney Apicella can help policyholders and insureds address any issues they may encounter when making an insurance claim. He understands the methods that insurance companies often use to deny or undervalue claims, such as claiming that exceptions to coverage apply or using delaying tactics in an attempt to force a person to agree to a settlement out of financial necessity. In addition to negotiating with insurance companies throughout the claims process, he can provide legal representation for policyholders who are required to submit to an examination under oath.

Our firm can assist with insurance claims and disputes related to multiple types of policies, including:

  • Fire insurance
  • Life insurance
  • Accidental death coverage
  • Property insurance
  • Homeowner's insurance
  • Liability insurance
  • Business interruption insurance
  • Professional liability insurance
  • Auto insurance

If an insurance claim has been denied in bad faith, we can help pursue litigation against the insurance company. In these cases, insureds may be able to receive the full amount of coverage under their policy, as well as other types of damages they suffered due to the insurance company's actions. These damages may address any financial losses that occurred because of the denial of the claim and emotional distress experienced by a person and their family members. Punitive damages may also be awarded to punish a company for its bad faith conduct.
