Insurance Bad Faith
Have you been the victim of bad faith insurance practices? A bad faith action is legally defined as an intentionally dishonest act violating basic standards of honesty in dealing with others by not fulfilling legal or contractual obligations, misleading another, or entering into an agreement without the intention or means to fulfill obligations under an insurance agreement. In other words, bad faith involves dishonest or unfair practices. In the insurance field, examples of bad faith include excessive and unnecessary delay in handling claims, inadequate investigation by the insurance company, when the insurance company puts its interests above their customers, refusing to fairly evaluate someone’s injury claim, refusing to fairly pay insurance benefits, violating the insured customers rights, and making unreasonable interpretations of an insurance policy. An insurance company’s improper attempt to renege on its obligations to its insured customers constitutes bad faith.
If you have made a valid insurance claim, the law requires your insurance company to properly investigate, examine, and resolve your claim in good faith. If your insurance company fails to live up to its end of the bargain by not adequately fulfilling these requirements, you may have grounds to file a bad faith lawsuit against them. When an insurer fails to honor benefits owed under the insurance contract agreement, unreasonably refuses to pay a claim, unreasonably refuses to fairly evaluate a claim, or tries to alter the rights of their customers when a claim is made against the policy, they are operating in bad faith. For that, you’ll need an experienced insurance attorney in Denver.
