Alabama Fraud Lawyers
Unfortunately, people don’t always do what they say they are going to do. What’s even worse is when someone intentionally, negligently, or recklessly misrepresents a material fact to someone else who relies on that statement and is damaged as a result. That is fraud.
If someone knows something that someone else should know, and the person with knowledge has a duty to disclose it and doesn’t, and the uninformed person is damaged as a result, that is a type of fraud as well – that is suppression. The law provides for those damaged as a result of fraud or fraudulent suppression to recover from the person or company that commits the fraud. Those damages can be compensatory and, if the conduct is bad enough, punitive damages may be awarded.

Bad Faith Insurance Attorney
Bad faith can occur when an insurance company fails to pay a claim that it should pay under its policy with its insured. Bad faith can occur because the insurance company fails to adequately investigate the claim or denies the claim without adequate justification. Damages for bad faith can include compensatory and in some cases punitive damages.
Some insurance companies engage in various wrongful conduct because they profit by doing so. Whether it’s denying legitimate claims, selling policies under which they never intend to provide coverage, failing to investigate claims made, or otherwise engaging in unlawful practices.

Manufacturers sometimes misrepresent the performance or capabilities of their product or fail to disclose some important limitation or feature unique to it. The product may be a defective product but even if it isn’t, the manufacturer’s fraud may be actionable. Regardless of whether there is a warranty, there may still be a fraud claim. You may have additional rights depending on the type of product or your relationship with the manufacturer.
