Facts On A Bad Faith Insurance Claim in Alabama

In our free e-book (which you can download from our site), David & Goliath, we catalogue the atrocious practices common in the insurance industry. These tactics are designed to intimidate, frustrate, and scare away victims from pursuing rightful claims. Unfortunately, many claimants do not recognize just how common these “bad faith” practices are -- nor do they appreciate the lengths to which insurance companies go to keep consumers in dark.

For instance, insurance companies have done a very effective job of painting personal injury attorneys as “ambulance chasers” who file spurious lawsuits and inflate healthcare costs.

The reality is just the opposite.

It's the insurance companies (or, rather, their representatives) who are often first to the hospital, right after bad auto crashes (and other awful events). They're there not to ensure that the victim gets fair treatment but rather to minimize the potential claim.

Don't take our word for it. Objective analyses done by the Washington Post, and other respected journalistic organs have exposed widespread dubious practices in the insurance industry.
