Insurance Litigation | Joplin, MO
Sometimes people forget that insurance companies are in the business of making money. The way they accomplish this is by collecting as much money as possible in premiums and paying out as little as possible in claims.
At Copeland & Brown, we offer a free initial consultation to explain your rights if your insurance claim has been denied unjustly, either by your own insurance company or someone else’s insurance company. We serve clients in Joplin and throughout southwest Missouri.
Examples of the types of insurance claims we handle include:
- Bad faith refusal to defend and/or settle claims
- Uninsured and underinsured motorist claims
- Car accident claims
- Denials of business liability claims
- Homeowner insurance claims for fire, theft and damage
- Denial of life, health and disability insurance
- Wrongful death claims
When my house and belongings were destroyed in the Joplin tornado, my insurance company raised self-serving requirements that Bruce and Jeremy told me weren’t actually in my policy. The attorneys at Copeland and Brown fought long and hard to get me the insurance benefits I had paid for and that were promised me when I purchased the policy.
Insurance companies are known to delay and deny legitimate claims or make lowball settlement offers, because they know that most people will give up without a fight. While we are a small law firm, our lawyers have the experience and legal knowledge to take on large insurance companies and win. Our attorneys have negotiated substantial settlements in cases against large insurance companies for bad faith handling of our client’s claim.
If an insurance company is not treating you fairly, contact our lawyers as soon as possible, so we can explain how to protect your rights. You should never make a recorded statement without seeking legal advice, as the insurance company will try to get you to say things that will damage your case.
Case results: Recently, the attorneys at Copeland & Brown recovered $8.5 million in compensation for our client by negotiating a settlement against three large insurance companies.
Jeremy and Bruce treated us like family. They and their staff were so caring, answered any questions we had and kept us apprised of all details of our case. They fought with the insurance company who had wrongfully denied coverage for years always staying two steps ahead of them. Their dedication and hard work ultimately resulted in a substantial settlement for us and our family. If the insurance company isn’t treating you fairly, we would highly recommend the attorneys at Copeland and Brown.
