Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) December 08, 2013
Claggett & the Sykes Law Firm is proud to announce that it has obtained a binding arbitration award against American Family Insurance.
The award stems from a lawsuit filed on behalf of a Claggett & Sykes client in which it was alleged American Family Insurance breached the contract with the insured. According to attorney Sean Claggett, American Family Insurance failed to honor a $100,000 policy for his client, never offering to pay more than $15,000 in compensation, despite more than $50,000 in medical expenses incurred.

“When insurance companies engage in unfair practices, as defined by NRS 686A.310, the person who paid the insurance company has the right to hold the insurance company accountable,” Claggett said. “Our firm takes great pride in holding insurance companies accountable when they engage in unfair practices.”
The arbitrator awarded Claggett’s client $213,617 after years of litigation.
