Examples of Insurance Bad Faith
Insurance bad faith is an action taken by an insurance company to deny, complicate, or undervalue a claim that is against the law, opposite the policy’s regulations, or otherwise unjustified. Insurance companies know that they cannot act in bad faith without the risk of some sort of retaliation, which could include being ordered to pay punitive damages to the claimant. Rather than strictly sticking to the rules and the law, some insurance companies will instead look for new ways to act in bad faith, which results in insurance bad faith taking many, many forms.
Some of the most common forms of insurance bad faith are:
- Denying a claim without a valid reason
- Delaying every step of the claims process
- Refusing to investigate a claim
- Offering a small amount for a claim when more is needed
- Changing a policy mid-term
- Threatening or verbally abusing a claimant
Tips for Negotiating with an Insurance Company
You want the most coverage possible from your insurance policy, so how do you get it? Negotiating with the insurance company might become necessary. But this is typically not something you should do alone.
The best tip we can give you about how to negotiate with an insurance company is to let your attorney do it for you instead. Insurance attorneys understand the tactics of insurance companies and the nuances in insurance law. When a lawyer acts on your behalf during negotiations, you do not need to worry about stumbling into any avoidable legal pitfalls because their knowledge becomes yours.
Was Your Claim Denied? Kantor & Kantor, LLP Can Help!
We expect our insurance company to provide the benefits we need following an injury. Unfortunately, our expectations are not always met. Insurance claims can be denied completely, or policyholders can be subjected to partial claim denials in which they are only allotted a portion of the coverage they need.
Our legal team is experienced in every aspect of the insurance claims process. We understand how devastating it is to be denied coverage in your time of need — we strive to ensure our clients receive the full amount of compensation they are entitled to. If you are not being provided the resources you need by an insurance company, we will do whatever it takes to recover compensation for you. In addition to our experience in the appeals process, we have helped clients recover benefits outside of the processes of their insurance company.
Insurance companies attempt to take advantage of their policyholders by misrepresenting the terms of their contract, delaying the claims process, or wrongfully denying coverage. The lawyers of Kantor & Kantor, LLP can protect your rights in the face of these types of dishonest insurance practices.
Our legal team provides assistance, representation, and support in cases involving issues such as:
- Complete claim denials
- Partial claim denials
- Bad faith insurance claims
