Tom Henderson and the Burg Simpson team have over four decades of experience analyzing and litigating these types of insurance policies. Mr. Henderson is the Chair of the Bad-Faith Insurance division of the firm’s Commercial Litigation Department. He spent the first twenty years of his practice representing the insurance companies, answering their questions about whether or not their policies provided coverage for certain losses. He has spent the past 12+ years of his practice exclusively representing insurance policyholders pursuing claims for insurance benefits owed by the insurance industry. Mr. Henderson and the attorneys at Burg Simpson use Mr. Henderson’s unusual background to their clients’ advantage because they know where the insurance industry weak spots are, where the smoking guns are hidden and how best to structure their clients’ cases to maximize the potential of getting the insurance companies to pay the benefits owed.
If the insurance companies refuse to pay the benefits owed by their policies, then suing them for bad faith is an option to consider. Mr. Henderson and the attorneys at Burg Simpson have successfully sued insurance companies for bad faith collecting millions of dollars for their clients when their own insurance companies improperly denied, underpaid, or slow paid claims.
Mr. Henderson has been consistently selected by his peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America© in the field of Insurance Law. He has also been recognized as a People’s Choice Best Insurance Lawyer and has been selected to Super Lawyers® every year since 2014. In 2019 and 2020, he was selected as a Colorado Top Lawyer in insurance by 5280 Magazine.
