Q. Can I get attorney’s fees if I prove my NH insurance company denied my coverage?

Posted by Richard E. Clark | Jul 13, 2013 | 0 Comments

A. New Hampshire law RSA 491:22-b states “In any action to determine coverage of an insurance policy pursuant to RSA 491:22, if the insured prevails in such action, he shall receive court costs and reasonable attorneys' fees from the insurer”.

The goal of this law is to protect consumers from improper refusal of insurance coverage.
