INSURANCE BAD FAITH – AN OVERVIEW
Insurance companies have a responsibility to uphold certain duties to their policy holders. When insurance companies do not act in proper accordance with the law, they can face lawsuits over their use of bad faith practices. Examples of bad faith insurance practices include:
- Unnecessary delay in processing claims
- Refusal to pay out valid claims
- Refusal to defend a lawsuit on behalf of a policy holder
- Making an unreasonable or unjust settlement offer
- Refusal to investigate a claim dispute or an undue delay in – investigation
- “Low-balling” a valid insurance claim (offering much less than what the claim is worth)
All types of insurance companies, including health insurance, auto insurance, and homeowner’s insurance firms, have a duty to act in a responsible, reasonable, and otherwise fair manner when a policy holder requests payment of a claim. If you have been taken advantage of by your insurance company, our attorneys can help you collect the compensation you are entitled to receive.
