Insurance Disputes

Wrongfully Denied Insurance Claims Representation

Insurance carriers design claims processing to limit or deny claims, even if coverage is rightfully owed to a policyholder. If you have recently been denied coverage or believe that you were not fully compensated under a policy, you have the right to file a “bad faith” claim against your insurance carrier.

At Farmer, Price, Hornsby & Weatherford we offer experienced advocacy to help clients pursue claims against insurance companies liable for wrongfully denied insurance claims. Our attorneys are experienced in denied insurance claims and coverage disputes involving:

If you pursue a bad faith claim, you may be able to recover damages as well as compensation for the original denial of your claim. We will take a strategic approach in reviewing your policy and determining the best course of action for your case.

Workers’ Compensation Defense

Workers’ Compensation Defense

At Farmer, Price, Hornsby & Weatherford, our approach to workers’ compensation benefits is not only responding to lawsuits filed against our clients, but also working with our clients and their insurers to avoid claims. We work in a proactive manner to assist our clients in handling their claims in such a way to minimize the need for litigation and unneeded expense.

We can assist you in the investigation immediately following an incident so as to allow your business to make an informed decision about how to address the claim you expect an injured employee to make. These are the steps:

  • Evaluate the circumstances of an injury to develop evidence to support potential defenses should the employee file a lawsuit against your company
  • Take statements of witnesses
  • Meet with safety directors to determine if a rule violation was the cause of the injury
  • Evaluate potential claims against any third-party who may be held responsible for your employee’s injuries, which can limit your liability

Our attorneys have been successful asserting defenses including violation of workplace safety rules, use of illegal drugs, lack of causation and others.
