The Cruelest Cut of All.

When an injury or death occurs to an unborn baby and/or the mother during labor in the delivery process, in many cases the harm may have been unavoidable under the circumstances.  In other situations, the course of treatment chosen by the doctor may have been inappropriate, or the physician may have failed to use proper skills and care before or during childbirth.

Certain events may occur such as caput succedaneum, which is the swelling of a newborn’s scalp, typically caused by pressures on the baby’s head during a difficult or prolonged head-first delivery.  Cephalohematoma is another type of birth injury that can be the result of vacuum extraction.  There are so many more things that can go horribly wrong.

Now That’s Just Bad Faith.

Every insurance company out there is required to investigate, negotiate, and finally settle claims in good faith.  It automatically exists in every insurance contract and is known as the implied covenant of good faith and dealing with each claimant fairly.  When insurance companies violate this duty NOT autonomous.  They can be held liable in a court of law.

Here are some examples of insurance company’s bad faith –

1.  They deny your claim without any good reason.
2.  Payment on a valid claim seems to take forever.
3.  When they finally do settle, they offer significantly less money than you deserve.
4.  They wave their sabers and make threatening comments.
5.  No documentation of their decision is provided.
