Having an experienced team at your side is paramount when handling disputes with insurance companies. Insurance disputes can be complex and emotionally challenging, and it is impossible to wade through the legal world alone.

We thoroughly review the policy in question to understand the terms, determine what the insurance company must be held accountable for, and ensure that you get the representation and advocacy you deserve.
Types of Insurance Disputes
There are different types of insurance disputes you may need an attorney for. Some common types of insurance disputes include:
- Denied claims: When an insurance company refuses to provide coverage or pay a claim submitted by an insured individual or their beneficiaries.
- Undervalued claims: When an insurance company offers a settlement amount that is significantly lower than the actual value of the claim. The insurance company may undervalue the extent of the damages, underestimate the financial impact on the insured individual or their beneficiaries, or use questionable evaluation methods.
- Delayed payments: If you’ve filed a claim, you expect your insurance company to pay you in a reasonable amount of time. If the company fails to uphold this expectation, you may be able to dispute it due to the delayed nature of the payment.
These happen for many reasons, including policy exclusions, discrepancies in coverage, or bad faith practices by insurance companies.
How an Attorney Can Help with Insurance Disputes
As experienced insurance dispute lawyers, we can help unravel the policy jargon in insurance policies and extrapolate your rights. We bring expertise, legal knowledge, and advocacy skills to the table, ensuring that your rights are protected and you have the best chance of obtaining fair compensation for your losses in insurance disputes.
Insurance policies can be unclear. It is not always obvious what you really signed up for. Some insurance companies will use this against you. We’ll help you understand the contract you signed and use that information to put you back in control of your rights.
We know your rights, and we can help you understand them, too. By partnering with Stinson Law Group, you’ll have a dedicated team negotiating with insurance companies, filing appeals on your behalf, and pursuing lawsuits if necessary.
Insurance Disputes By State
Should you find yourself in need of legal representation for an insurance dispute, it is imperative that you select a lawyer well-versed in the intricacies of your state’s laws. Each state boasts its own unique set of considerations when it comes to insurance claims, making it crucial to enlist the expertise of an attorney who possesses a deep understanding of these jurisdictional nuances.
For example, bad faith insurance occurs when insurance companies use various strategies and tactics to evade their contractual responsibilities towards their policyholders. However, what qualifies as bad faith differs from state to state. When you work with a qualified lawyer, they will be able to navigate these sometimes minute details.
In Wyoming, there are two main components that establish an insurer as acting in bad faith when it denies a claim. Firstly, it must be proven that there is no justifiable reason for the insurance company to deny the claim. Secondly, it must be shown that the insurer was fully aware of the absence of valid grounds for the claim denial.
Montana’s Unfair Claim Settlement Practices Act regulates the conduct of insurance companies in handling and settling insurance claims. The UCSPA is designed to protect policyholders and ensure fair treatment during the claims process. It outlines certain practices that are considered unfair or deceptive when performed by insurers.
The Montana law has 14 examples of unfair treatment, such as (1) misrepresenting pertinent facts or insurance policy provisions relating to coverages at issue; (2) fail to acknowledge and act reasonably promptly upon communications with respect to claims arising under insurance policies.
