If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident, an attorney is someone that can help you navigate what will likely be a complex and prolonged financial reimbursement process. At the Tampa personal injury law firm of Clark & Martino, P.A., we spare no effort to ensure that our clients are compensated fully and fairly for their losses, be it a wrecked automobile, mounting hospital bills, or a forced hiatus from work.
Unfortunately, insurance companies often withhold compensation from their policyholders. Particularly in severe auto accident injury cases, where stakes are at their highest, insurance companies will fight tooth and nail to limit what they pay. Some insurance companies even go so far as to act in “bad faith” – that is, willfully refuse to honor a contractual obligation. Acting in bad faith is a distinct civil wrong recognized under Florida law, and can lead to punitive damages and reimbursement for attorneys’ fees.
None of this is to say that an insurance company will, in fact, act in bad faith with regard to your claim, but it is a possibility. At Clark & Martino, P.A. in Tampa, we have experience at handling these types of cases. Each of the partners at our firm is board-certified in civil trial law by The Florida Bar and has won verdicts in excess of $1 million. In the event that an insurance company is acting in bath faith and refuses to pay your claim, we have the skill, resources, and most importantly, experience necessary to put up a fight.
