Despite the outward appearance of insurance companies and ad campaigns
describing how they are on your side, insurance providers are still businesses
with shareholders to please. As such, insurance companies oftentimes have
an interest to search for any reason to deny or limit your claim in order
to protect their profits – even if it means employing less than
ethical means. If your insurance provider has failed to settle a claim
in a timely manner or has dishonestly handled your claim, you may have
been a victim of
insurance bad faith.
Insurance bad faith can include any of the following:
Denying valid claims without reason
- Paying policyholders less than they are owed
- Forcing policyholders to sign release forms before being paid
Delaying the payment of valid claims
- Refusing to investigate claims
- Intentionally misleading policyholders
Since insurance policies are contracts, policyholders who have been mistreated
can bring a legal claim against their insurance company for their entitled
coverage with the help of a knowledgeable insurance bad faith lawyer.
Through a detailed examination of your insurance policy and your specific
situation, an attorney can help you determine if your insurance provider’s
actions were indeed committed in bad faith and determine a strategy that
maximizes your chances of success. Most insurance companies treat claims
much more seriously once a respected attorney’s name is involved,
oftentimes resulting in settlements that are up to three times as much
as what was originally offered.
