Why you need a Denver wrongful death claims denial lawyer
Wrongful death claims are among the most complex and high value personal injury claims in Colorado. Our Denver wrongful death attorneys help clients pursue justice for family members killed by the negligence of someone else. Often wrongful death claims involve insurance companies paying some or all of the claim.
Often insurance companies fight hard against these high value claims because fair value for somebody’s life is considerably higher than a settlement of a typical car accident or other negligence claim. Our Denver denied wrongful death claim lawyers can evaluate coverage, negotiate with the insurance companies and fight for the compensation you deserve in court, if necessary. At Front Range Injury Attorneys, our lawyers are experienced advocates with proven success.
Unfair settlement practices in Colorado
Colorado law regulates insurance companies within the state, including unfair settlement practices. Under unfair settlement practices law, insurers have duties to attempt in good faith to settle claims covered by the policy. When liability to a third party is reasonably clear, the insurer has a duty to policyholders to indemnify the insured from personal liability. Insurance companies cannot engage in unfair practices, including:
- Refusing to pay claims without conducting reasonable investigation of available information and evidence
- Failing to promptly provide a policyholder a reasonable explanation of the basis for denying a claim or settlement offer under the insurance policy or applicable law
- Misrepresenting insurance policy provisions or pertinent facts regarding the coverage at issue
- Failing to attempt in good faith to effectuate prompt, fair and equitable settlement of a claim with liability is reasonably clear
Although insurance companies generally owe no duties to a third party, an insurance company owes duties to a policyholder that relate to how the carrier adjusts wrongful death claims filed by a third party.
What are your legal rights under Colorado law?
If an insurance company denies your wrongful death claim, your pursuit of justice does not end there. If you filed a wrongful death claim against your policy, a wrongfully denied personal injury claim may result in a bad faith insurance claim in addition to your wrongful death claim. When an insurance company breaches a duty of good faith to its insured, it may create additional claims against the insurance company for additional damages. Under Colorado insurance law, you may be able to pursue as much as two times the denied claim benefits plus attorney’s fees and costs.
A wrongfully denied claim by an insurer for a liable party often requires you to file a personal injury lawsuit to pursue compensation. Our Denver attorneys pursue negligent parties in court for wrongful death and other accident claims. In certain circumstances, we can pursue additional claims against the negligent party’s insurance carrier. Our experienced personal injury lawyers will assess every opportunity to pursue justice in your case for your lost family member.
