    The plaintiff may have a valid claim despite what you observed. Instead of paying the policy limits, your insurance company is gambling with your assets and future trying to protect their profit. Write a letter to the insurance company authorizing and demanding they offer the policy limits immediately.

    Russell’s Answer
