Insurance Bad Faith Claims
In most states, drivers are required to carry a minimum amount of insurance coverage as required by the specific state. They routinely pay these monthly premiums so that they are financially protected in the event of an accident.
Unfortunately, when an accident does occur, sometimes policyholders struggle to receive the insurance claim payment that they are owed. If you have filed a claim with your insurer but have not received payment as described under your policy, your provider may be acting in bad faith.
Types of Bad Faith
Like all businesses, insurance companies seek to make the most money they can from insurance sales. However, this does not give them an excuse to intentionally deceive or defraud customers by avoiding paying claims that they are legally obligated to honor. Some of the tactics that insurers may use to frustrate policyholders’ claims in bad faith include:
- Denying claims that are legitimate
- Delaying claims or making the process more complicated than necessary
- Underpaying claims to try to get a policyholder to settle for a reduced payout
