South Carolina Insurance Bad Faith Lawyers

You rely on your insurance company during some of the most trying times in life—floods, fires, hospitalizations, car accidents, and the death of a family member, among others.

Bad Faith Insurance FAQs

How can I detect bad faith insurance tactics?

There are a few telltale signs of bad faith practices that everyone should be conscious of when dealing with their insurance company. The most common and obvious bad faith tactics that insurance companies use include immediately denying a claim or simply refusing to investigate a claim. This is often followed by the insurer failing to provide any explanation of why they refused or denied the claim. Some bad faith insurance practices are more subtle and hard to detect, like taking an unreasonable amount of time to respond to a claim, improperly citing laws to lessen a settlement, and refusing to negotiate a settlement. If you have recognized any of these practices when dealing with your insurance company, you may want to hire an attorney to investigate for possible insurance bad faith.

What should I do in the event of bad faith insurance practices?

You should never allow your insurance company to take advantage of you. If you think you have detected bad faith practices, you should begin to gather information and document all interactions with your adjuster. It is important to note the date of your interactions and be as detailed a possible in your descriptions. Next, you should contact a skilled insurance bad faith attorney as soon as you can. An experienced lawyer will be able to help you through the process of bringing a bad faith lawsuit against your insurer. Bad faith cases may seem daunting and complicated, but having the right lawyer on your side will make the process much easier.

What can I recover in a case of insurance bad faith?

In an insurance bad faith case, you may be able to recover both economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages would cover the benefits you are entitled to receive under your insurance policy. Non-economic damages refer to any emotional or financial distress that has caused you to suffer. In some extreme cases, punitive damages may be rewarded if the jury believes the insurer has acted in a particularly egregious manner.

I recently retained Mr. James Moore to represent me in an accident involving a trucking company. He settled the case in a timely and professional manner, and i couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome. I would recommend him and the firm, with the highest regards, to anyone needing legal representation.


God Bless James Moore & Scott Evans for the work they do – fighting for those that cannot speak for themselves, those that are pushed aside and thrown away, those that do not have a voice, those that are true victims.

After suffering a tragic loss, I went to several law firms looking for someone to help with some sort of settlement from the family of the person who caused the loss. After having the door shut in my face, countless times I met with James and Scott, who agreed to take the case to see what he could do. Each time , throughout the process I called the office, no matter who I spoke to or why I called, everyone made me feel like a valued client. I am grateful for the Evans Moore law firm and will recommend them to anyone who would find their representation useful.
