Sometimes when an insurance company denies a claim based on an accident, injury or property damage, the reason may be non-existent, unjustified, or made without proper notice.
The carrier may try to delay paying benefits, or attempt to undervalue a settlement. Each case is different, but depending on the facts and circumstances, there are many instances where the policy holder may have a legitimate claim of bad faith against the insurance company.
To be certain, not every denial by an insurer can be considered bad faith, and there is no uniform or clearly defined standard for what constitutes actions of bad faith by an insurance company.
However, if a business or individual has been treated unfairly, denied coverage without cause, or refused a reasonable settlement, our attorneys are prepared to bring a claim of insurance bad faith against the insurance carrier when necessary.
