California Attorney Represents Clients in Bad Faith Actions Against Insurers
Experienced lawyer hold insurance companies in the 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. The attorneys at Patterson Law understand the complexities involved in insurance matters and draw on our experience representing clients in the area and throughout California in bad faith claims to help you seek the result you deserve.
