Commercial Property– Insurance Bad Faith
Doyle LLP Trial Lawyers has filed suit against Lexington Insurance Company, McLarens Inc., and its adjusters for the denial of a commercial property insurance claim. The claim arose from a May 29, 2013 hail storm that hit the Dallas and North Texas area.
The suit seeks the insurance benefits under the policy in order to allow repair of several damaged commercial properties. In addition, Doyle LLP’s client has filed suit to obtain interest for the delayed payment of insurance benefits, attorneys’ fees, and other damages associated with the delay in repairs to the commercial buildings involved.
Although Doyle LLP’s client provided all of the proper documentation to support its claim, Lexington Insurance Company, McLarens, Inc., and their adjusters refused to pay the claim. They issued multiple denial letters, failed to conduct a reasonable investigation, and refused to pay the claim even though their liability was reasonably clear, the suit alleges.The suit further alleges that Lexington Insurance Company and its adjusters breached the insurance policy, violated the duty of good faith and fair dealing, and failed to follow various Texas statues, such as the Texas Insurance Code – Unfair Claim Settlement Practices Act, the Prompt Payment Act, and the Deceptive Trade Practices Act (DTPA).
