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.
