Does the Insurance company Need a Reason to Deny My Claim?

Unfortunately, many Baltimore personal injury lawyers may answer that question in the affirmative. Most insurance companies are huge entities with massive resources that dwarf those of the individuals with whom they have a dispute.

There is a code of conduct for insurers regarding the claims practices. Maryland law provides that it is an "unfair claim settlement practice" to: refuse to pay a claim for an arbitrary or capricious reason; misrepresent pertinent facts or policy provisions; or to fail to provide a basis for denials.
