Insurance Disputes

An insurance policy is a contract between an Insured party and an insurance carrier. Bad faith insurance is any matter regarding an insurance claim by an Insured that is wrongfully denied by the Insurer. The insurance policy requires that an Insurer act in “good faith.” Bad faith insurance may consist of the following: Failing to promptly and thoroughly investigate a claim, Refusing to settle a case or reimburse the insured for the entirety of his or her loss, Unreasonable delay in making payments to the policyholder, attempts to under-settle or lowball the payment of a claim, denial of benefits to a claim or termination of an insurance claim that should have been paid, or failure to defend a policyholder who has been sued under a policy containing a liability provision.
