What Sets Us Apart
In California, insurance companies have a duty to be fair and honest in all of their dealings with their insureds. Unfortunately, this doesn’t stop them from denying medical coverage. If you have been wrongly denied medical benefits, we can help.
Our attorneys are tenacious litigators. Over the years, they have gone up against the country’s largest insurers – including United Healthcare, Aetna and Anthem Blue Cross. Our firm understands how insurance companies function and know the strategies they use to deny claims. Common justifications used to deny medical coverage include:
- Unnecessary medical treatment
- Experimental medicine or treatment
- Errors made on initial benefits application
- Preauthorization requirements
- Policy termination
Our experience gives you an edge during negotiations and litigation. We have a long track record of success – we’ve recovered millions of dollars on behalf of our clients.
Maximizing The Value Of Your Claim
If you purchased health insurance on your own – not through your employer – your benefits claim will be governed by California law. Through a bad faith insurance claim, you can not only force your insurance company to cover your medical expenses, but also obtain compensation for your pain and suffering, and punitive damages.
At Creitz & Serebin, we will pursue maximum compensation on your behalf. Contact us today at 415-466-3090 to schedule a consultation with one of our lawyers.
