Bad Faith

There are occasions when your insurance company handles your claim in a manner that constitutes “bad faith.” Your insurance company owes you the duty to treat you fairly and in good faith.

In short an insurance company cannot:

  • Misrepresent the terms of a policy;
  • Misrepresent the advantages or benefits of a policy;
  • Misrepresent a material fact or policy provision;
  • Fail to attempt in good faith to reach a fair settlement of a claim;
  • Fail to provide a reasonable explanation for the denial of a claim;
  • Fail within a reasonable time to affirm or deny coverage or submit a reservation of rights;
  • Refuse to pay a claim without conducting a reasonable investigation with respect to the claim.

Bad faith cases require a thorough investigation by an experienced lawyer.
