Defining Insurance Litigation

Insurance litigation can be defined as the process of disputing the results of an insurance claim or settlement. This dispute can address the financial amount of a settlement or focus on the liability of any involved parties. Additionally, most insurance providers are expected to provide a certain standard of care to any customers that choose to purchase a policy from them. A dispute can be lodged by a company or individual against an insurance provider if they believe the provider is not adhering to this standard. For example, they may believe that the provider has not performed an adequate investigation into their claim and does not have the information they need to make an educated decision.
