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.

Client Reviews
We use Tim Hoch to handle complex business litigation matters on a variety of topics. He combines a strategic, no-frills approach with a bottom-line mindset. He is extremely responsive, organized and thorough. We would gladly recommend his services.
In short order, he was able to quickly understand and master the details of our case and map out a very cost-effective, efficient legal strategy. After a series of quick wins in court, our opponent came to the table with a highly satisfactory settlement. Mr. Hoch’s ability to effectively tell a persuasive story within the confines of a courtroom is without equal. Anthony Page
