What kind of damages can I recover in a bad faith action?

In most cases, you will be entitled to both economic and non-economic damages, such as the benefits you are entitled to under the policy, as well as damages such as emotional distress which you have suffered because of the insurance company's actions and can prove in court. Punitive damages may be available if the conduct of the insurer was particularly egregious, and some jurisdictions allow you to recover attorney's fees as well. At Mannion Lowe & Oksenendler, A Professional Corporation, we take cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning that our fees are a percentage of any recovery we obtain for you, and if we don't recover, we do not charge a fee.
