Florida’s Leading Bad Faith Insurance Attorney of the Year: Thomas J. Morgan, Jr.
Thomas J. Morgan was admitted to the Florida Bar Association in 1997 and has spent over two decades protecting the rights of Florida insurance policyholders to ensure their providers deliver on their legally binding obligations outlined in the policies they design.
Mr. Morgan is currently the Managing Partner at The Morgan Law Group and invites all Floridians to hold their insurance carriers responsible for the coverage their policies outline after they have suffered damages.
What Is Bad Faith Insurance?
Insurance coverage requires compliance from both sides of the agreement to be effective.
Insurance companies have a duty to their policyholders to meet the full compensation requirements outlined in their legally binding agreement when the policyholder upholds their agreement to pay for the coverage on time.
Bad faith insurance claims can be brought against the insurance company for several reasons, including when the carrier:
- Denies coverage to the policyholder without a valid explanation
- Fails to adequately investigate the claim in a timely or proper manner
- Intentionally misrepresents the terms of the coverage
- Knowingly offers less than the value outlined in the policy
- Makes unreasonable interpretations of the insurance policy
- Refuses to defend a lawsuit
- Threatens the insured
- Unnecessarily prolongs the insurance settlement
When the insurance carrier violates the agreement, the policyholder may file a bad faith insurance claim to pursue the financial recovery they deserve for their home, business, or other property damage.
