What Constitutes Bad Faith?
An insurance policy is essentially a contract. When you purchase a policy, you are obligated to submit payments on time and the insurance company has a responsibility to honor the terms of the contract. If an insurer fails to uphold their end of the contract by handling your claim in bad faith or in a dishonest manner, then you may be able to take legal action by filing a bad faith insurance claim.
You may have a valid bad faith insurance claim if an insurer:
- Has denied your claim without a valid reason
- Delayed investigations of a claim
- Attempting to settle a claim for far less than what the coverage allows
- Using abusive or threatening language when communicating
- Misrepresented the terms of the policy and benefits
There are many more examples of bad faith insurance practices. Don't hesitate to go over your claim with one of our attorneys and we can provide you with our honest assessments.
