Insurance Fraud Lawsuits Lawyer
No one wants to pay for insurance, but it is a necessary service to protect your assets and financial liability. Many people pay for health, life, auto and home insurance, assuming they are getting the coverage they chose at a reasonable cost. However, insurance companies have too often engaged in deceptive business practices that can gouge their customers and give them less for their money than expected. When insurance fraud occurs, consumers have the option of seeking legal means to recover damages through class action lawsuits.
It is not always a choice to buy insurance. In Georgia, drivers must have a minimum liability insurance policy on their vehicle. Lenders may require that those with auto, boat, RV or home loans have certain levels of insurance on their assets to protect them from loss. While insurance is required, it is not always regulated as closely as needed to protect consumers from fraudulent charges or deceptive coverage. When insurance companies use fraudulent business practices against their customers to increase their profits, a civil lawsuit is often the best way to shed light on the problem and recover damages for the victims.
Types of Class Action Insurance Lawsuits
There are many different types of insurance scams that have been uncovered through class action lawsuits. Unfortunately, even when one company is sued and forced to pay damages to their customers, another insurance corporation may still be using similar fraudulent practices. Some types of class action insurance claims that have incurred involve:
- Raising premiums without notice
- Forced-placed insurance by lenders
- Using “bait and switch” advertising
- Charging more for less coverage
Insurance fraudulent practices often continue as the damages are not enough per consumer to seek legal help. However, when hundreds or thousands of consumers file a class action lawsuit, their voice can be heard, and damages can be won to recover their financial losses.
