Experienced Knoxville Insurance Dispute Attorneys
Protecting Tennessee policyholders against insurers safeguarding their own interests
We know the path to settlement that insurance companies take often uses unsavory methods to drive quick settlements that save carriers money. Burying insureds in paperwork to delay payment buys them time to find reasons to deny claims or substantially reduce payout of your benefits. Every action insurance carriers take is designed to put themselves in a better position rather than upholding their promise to you. What recourse do you have when you have paid years of premiums to your insurance company, only to be left out in the cold when you are at your most vulnerable?
