Insurance Bad Faith Attorney in Jackson, Mississippi


Some time ago - years, or maybe decades - you carefully selected the insurance policy that best suited you. You've followed all of its terms since then, and you've paid your premiums on time. You've never had a reason to fear that you would be denied coverage if you ever needed it. But after a catastrophe, your insurance company tells you there's nothing they can do to help.

At Mark L. Pearson, P.A., we believe that this conduct is unjust, not to mention a clear breach of contract. Our purpose is rooted firmly in our passion for defending everyday individuals against the powerful insurance companies and corporations who would ruin lives to help their own bottom line.

When the terms of an insurance contract are ambiguous, the law states that the contract should be construed in favor of the policyholder. That means that if you think your insurance contract is vague and ambiguous, you may have a case against your insurance company. Contact Mark L. Pearson, P.A. at 1-800627-6822.

The Insidious Methods Employed in Insurance Bad Faith

Most of the claims we handle fall under one of four categories:

  1. Life insurance
  2. Health insurance
  3. Disability insurance
  4. Homeowner's insurance

When an insurance company denies a legitimate claim, they often come up with a patently illegitimate reason for doing so. Sometimes, policyholders pay their money to an insurance agent who runs off with it instead of handing it over to the company. There is also a method called "post-claims underwriting," where an insurance company will claim that you were never eligible for your policy in the first place. Rather than pay off your claim, they will simply refund your premiums.

The most recent egregious example of insurance bad faith was in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, when insurance executives deliberately committed fraud and changed the engineering reports that proved claims were legitimate.
