Insurance & Financial Products & Services

When insurance companies and affiliated financial services entities engage in fraudulent, deceptive or unfair practices, Berger & Montague helps injured parties recover their losses.

Berger & Montague's Insurance & Financial Products & Services Group focuses on fraudulent, deceptive and unfair business practices across all lines of insurance, including life insurance, health insurance, property and casualty insurance, automobile insurance, and disability insurance. Clients also retain us to prosecute class actions regarding fraudulent, deceptive and unfair business practices with respect to the financial products and services sold by insurers and their affiliates, which include annuities, securities and other investment vehicles.

Insurer misconduct for which Berger & Montague litigates on behalf of individual, group and institutional policyholders, as well as consumers across the United States, include, for example:

  • fraudulent, deceptive and unfair sales and marketing practices;
  • fraudulent, deceptive and unfair practices concerning product suitability;
  • fraudulent, deceptive and unfair fees and charges, including hidden or undisclosed fees;
  • fraudulent, deceptive and unfair practices concerning the adjustment of claims;
  • charging excessive premiums;
  • engaging in erroneous product valuations;
  • predatory lending;
  • churning;
  • coverage disputes; and
  • bad faith denial and underpayment of insurance claims and benefits.

When Berger & Montague litigates these cases on behalf of individual, group and institutional policyholders and consumers, we may take action on a nationwide, multi-state or single-state class action basis. Where appropriate, we also litigate direct claims by individual policyholders and purchasers. To investigate and combat these fraudulent practices by insurance companies and their affiliated financial services entities, we frequently collaborate with industry experts.

No Fees Without Recovery

Berger & Montague insurance and financial products and services cases are often litigated on a contingent fee basis, so plaintiffs and the class do not pay attorneys' fees or court costs unless there is a recovery.
