Losing a particular asset, piece of property, or experiencing injury can be life altering and traumatizing. Insurance companies exist to protect individuals when an accident occurs, they do this by providing coverage after certain policies are purchased by consumers. Types of insurance companies include:
Accidents in automobiles and trucks, storm or fire damage to homes, and property damage are just a couple kinds of accidents that some insurances cover.
Insurance companies have a self-interest to deny claims and save money, but are required by law to act in the best interest of the insured. Bad faith insurance claims arise when insurance companies do not cover or pay legitimate claims to the covered party.
What Constitutes Bad Faith Insurance Claims
If an insurance company denies payment of a valid claim, you should fight for the compensation that is rightfully yours. Bad faith insurance claim litigation includes matters such as:
- Unfair settlement offers
- Failure to pay a claim in a timely manner
- Denial of legitimate claim
- Failure to pay full value of claim
- Unreasonable termination of policy
- Misrepresentation of an insurance product
- Unreasonable demands for proof
