Insurance Bad Faith

Insurance policy and penAn insurance company's main purpose is to sell insurance policies to their policyholders. This policy is intended to help its holder in difficult times, and to protect the holder from harmful events. When you are in accident, your home is destroyed by fire or severe weather, you or loved one is diagnosed with a serious injury or illness, the policy holder expects the insurance company to do what it promised and what it is supposed to do when these life events cross our paths.

If you make a claim on your uninsured motorist coverage or your medical payments coverage or your property damage coverage and your insurance company treats you unfairly by denying your claim or offering you an inadequate amount of money, this can be considered insurance bad faith. Your insurance company has a duty to treat you fairly, reasonably, and in good faith.

Bad faith occurs if an insurance company has rejected your legitimate insurance claim or has delayed in the payment of your claim unnecessarily. Insurance law requires that every claim be handled fairly and reasonably. When an insurance company fails to live up to its end of the bargain and the terms of their policies, it is considered to be acting in bad faith.

Insurance companies can commit bad faith by:

  • Failing to promptly and thoroughly investigate a claim
  • Using unreasonable interpretations in translating the language of the policy
  • Refusing to settle a legitimate case
  • Deliberately denying benefits due
  • Deliberately delaying payments
  • Failure to reimburse you entirely for your loss
