Examples of Insurance Bad Faith

Categories: Insurance Bad Faith

As consumers, we often pay insurance premiums for years relying on the promise made by the insurer that they will pay claims for any loss covered by the policy. Bad faith allegations usually arise from claims wrongfully denied by the insurer.
Some examples of insurance bad faith include:

  • Wrongfully denying coverage for claims that should be covered by the policy
  • Misrepresenting policy provisions or important facts related to coverage
  • Failing to attempt to come to a reasonable settlement when liability is clear
  • Failure to provide a reasonable explanation when denying a claim

Not every claim denied or decision you disagree with will necessarily constitute bad faith. But, if you have been unfairly treated or have had a claim wrongfully denied or delayed, you may have a cause of action against your insurance company.
If this has happened to you, an Arizona Insurance Bad Faith Attorney with expertise in insurance bad faith can review your case to help you determine if you have a case against the insurer and provide guidance on how to proceed.
