People buy insurance for all sorts of reasons, and when something goes wrong, people expect their insurance company to be there for them. Unfortunately, that is not always the case.
Insurance companies are businesses, and they always have an eye on the bottom line. This means that, in some cases, they do not do what they are contractually obligated to do.
“Bad faith” is a legal term meaning an insurance company has acted unreasonably or unfairly in the payment of a claim, or in fulfillment of its duties owed to an insured. This includes instances where an insurance company has unreasonably denied, delayed, or underpaid a claim. It can be difficult to prove insurance bad faith, especially without experienced attorneys to represent you.
If you’re having a problem with your insurance company, typically it is likely to fall under one of these four categories:
Disability Coverage Denial
Failure to Pay
