People and businesses pay huge premiums to insurance companies expecting protection when there is a loss or claim. However when a claim is made, many insurance companies delay, reserve rights, or deny payment.
Insurance policies are very complicated. The policies are written by the insurance companies, and when there is a claim, the insurance companies often rely on loopholes and technicalities to deny benefits.
Insurance agents and agencies often promise anything to make a sale. However when a claim arises, people sometimes find out the insurance agents or agencies did not give proper advice or use care to make sure the policy provided the insurance benefits and protections promised.
Individuals and businesses can make claims against an insurance agent, agency or insurance company to seek protection and compensation. There are laws to protect insurance consumers. Unfortunately, those laws are complicated..

Many people purchase uninsured or underinsured motorist insurance to protect them and their families if they are seriously injured in a wreck by a driver who does not have enough liability insurance. Ironically, the insurance companies which sell this insurance often fight their own policyholders to prevent paying benefits. We have helped many clients get fair compensation from their uninsured or underinsured insurance.
We have advised many businesses in disputes with their own insurance companies. We have helped our clients make insurance companies pay to provide them a defense or pay to reimburse them for losses to property or business.
If you have been denied payment on life insurance policy, if an insurance company is stalling on payment of a claim or failing to defend you when they have an obligation to do so, contact the insurance attorneys at Dixon & Thompson Law PLLC.
