Insurance companies have legal duties toward their policyholders. When they systematically defraud and cheat their own customers to put more money in their own pockets, they can be held accountable through class action lawsuits.

Our Georgia insurance fraud class action attorneys have obtained significant results for individuals and businesses nationwide that have been mistreated by insurance companies. In the last three years alone we have obtained benefits in excess of $225 million for class members harmed by insurance companies. If you suspect you have been defrauded, don't hesitate to contact us for a free case evaluation.
Seeking Compensation for Fraudulent Insurance Company Practices
Insurance companies may claim to be protecting your interests, but ultimately, their main concern is their bottom line. Sometimes, their profit motive results in them adopting policies and practices that cross the line into fraud. The following are a few examples:
Unrefunded credit insurance premiums: We have unparalleled results in these cases. If you have paid off a car, boat or RV early, you may be entitled to a partial refund of credit insurance premiums that you prepaid when you took out the original loan. Our firm has pursued several nationwide class action lawsuits against insurance companies that failed to
provide refunds of unearned premiums, and we have put tens of millions of dollars back into the pockets of aggrieved insureds.
- Inadequate compensation for totaled vehicles: In the past, insurance companies have been caught systematically refunding their policyholders less than the book value of vehicles that were totaled in accidents. If you suspect that you may have been cheated out of the property damage compensation you deserved, we can help.
- Insurance premium overcharging: Insurance billing policies may result in policyholders getting charged higher premiums than their policies say they should be paying. This is a particularly significant problem in the area of life insurance. Our attorneys can examine your policy and your billing statements to determine whether you have been overcharged.
These are just a few of the types of fraudulent practices that insurance companies have been caught perpetrating. Our attorneys have the knowledge and insight to carefully evaluate your case and determine whether you and other consumers like you may have a class action claim.
