Bad Faith Claims
When an insurance company sells you or a family member and insurance policy, they have duties imposed by law to deal with you fairly and in good faith. Claims based a violation of that duty are commonly known as Bad Faith Claims. There are many different ways that an Insurance Company might engage in Bad Faith giving rise to a claim. Generally, a Bad Faith Claim may arise when the insurance company:
- interprets its policy in a way that hurts you and is unreasonable
- not properly investigating a claim
- withholding some benefits to which you are entitled
