Deceptive or Illegal Fees and Billing

Unauthorized and Illegal Insurance Fees and Charges

In reviewing your insurance statement you may see fees and charges for services that you don’t recall signing up for, seem excessive, or you just don’t understand. Some of these charges may be unauthorized or illegal and you may be entitled to a refund. Often, they are small in amount and insurance companies assume that a consumer will not go through the trouble of trying to recover such a small amount, but a few dollars here and there can add up to hundreds of thousands, if not millions of dollars in revenue for the insurance company.

Our consumer lawyers can help determine if you’ve been the victim of an illegal fee or charge and may be able help you recover your money.

Illegal Insurance Company Fees & Unauthorized Charges Details

Many insurance companies generate substantial profits by charging customers add-on fees, excessive premiums for coverage the policyholder did not sign up for, improper late fees, inflated premiums, or by denying valid claims or improperly decreasing payments to customers with valid claims. Often, the fees and deductions are undisclosed and were never agreed to by the consumer. It can also be difficult to get a straightforward explanation from the insurance company as to the origin or purpose of these charges.

Our consumer protection attorneys understand how intimidating it can be to take on a large insurance company on your own. We want to help you, and in the process stop the imposition of these unlawful fees on you and other consumers.

Examples of Illegal Insurance Company Fees & Unauthorized Charges

  • Charging additional fees (such as late fees), costs, or charges not clearly disclosed in the policy agreement.
  • Charging a policyholder for services that the policyholder did not sign up for.
  • Charging for coverage that exceeds what the policyholder agreed to.
  • Charging an inflated premium.
