Illinois Attorney Represents Clients in Bad Faith Actions Against Insurers

Experienced lawyer holds insurance companies in the Naperville area accountable

By law, your insurance carrier owes you a duty to act in good faith, which means they cannot look for ways to avoid their obligations under the terms of your policy. Such actions may constitute bad faith, and policyholders can seek remedies through the legal system. At Law Offices of Steven E. Stern, LLC, I understand the complexities involved in insurance matters and draw on my experience representing clients in the Naperville area and throughout Illinois in bad faith claims to help you seek the result you deserve.

Responsive advocate helps you understand your rights as an insured

At Law Offices of Steven E. Stern, LLC, I can advise your of your rights when an insurer refuses to promptly and properly investigate your claim or refuses to pay a claim that is covered under your policy. My firm brings actions against even the largest insurers when they act fraudulently or in bad faith. I represent clients throughout Illinois in claims against insurers who fail to act in good faith by:

  • Denying coverage without a valid reason or investigation or failing to provide a reasonable explanation for the denial
  • Failing to confirm, deny or pay the claim in a reasonable period of time
  • Failing to reach a fair settlement when liability is proven
  • Failing to disclose policy limits

In insurance litigation and appeals, I provide services for clients involving:

  • First-party claims
  • Third-party claims
  • Claim management consulting
  • Motor vehicle claims
  • Construction claims
  • Analysis and interpretation of insurance policies

Illinois insurance law offers the insured a variety of protections. I work to ensure that you receive those protections. Knowing your rights is the first step to finding a solution to your legal problems, and I am dedicated to guiding you through the process to make sure you receive the coverage you paid for.

Skilled Illinois litigator upholds your rights in bad faith claims

Our firm has a proven record of successful settlements and jury verdicts, and is comfortable handling even the most complex cases. Whether an insurance company is investigating in bad faith, is failing to make payments, or is holding up the claims process, I will work to get you the justice you deserve.
