Biloxi & Gulfport Insurance Bad Faith Attorney
For decades, Judy Guice has successfully challenged insurance companies who refuse to honor their contracts with their policyholders. When Hurricane Katrina struck the Mississippi Gulf Coast, Judy used that experience to lead the fight against unfair claims practices and denials. Her home, like thousands of others, was destroyed down to the slab by the forces of Hurricane Katrina. She helped uncover critical evidence that was helpful to all policyholders. She also argued the landmark case of Corban v. USAA, which correctly interpreted homeowner policies to provide coverage that was denied by the insurance industry. Attorneys Guice and Reese have continued the fight since Hurricane Katrina – refusing to allow insurance companies to unreasonably deprive policyholders of their benefits owed under the policy.

Insurance bad faith arises in a variety of circumstances. An insurance company owes its policyholders a duty to act in good faith. When that does not happen, it is called insurance bad faith and the insurance company can be forced to pay what it owes you under the policy. If the insurance company’s act is grossly negligent or intentional, you may be entitled to punitive damages. Examples of bad faith insurance practices include:
- Unfairly denying benefits to a policyholder
- Undue delay in handling claims
- Inadequate investigation
- Refusal to defend a lawsuit
- Threats against an insured
- Refusing to make a reasonable settlement offer
- Making unreasonable interpretations of an insurance policy
- Failure to provide coverages promised
- Fraud of agents and insurance companies in denials and underpayments
Attorneys Guice and Reese are here to help with your insurance bad faith claim, including: life insurance claims, fire insurance claims, automobile insurance claims and uninsured motorist claims.
