Protecting Your Best Interests When Your Insurance Company Acts In Bad Faith
An insurance policy is a contract between the person who purchases it and the insurance company. The insured agrees to pay the premium and the insurer agrees to cover the claims that the insured submits when coverage is needed in the event of an accident or catastrophe. Insurance law dictates that there is an unwritten promise that the insurance company will treat the client fairly.
Not all insurance companies behave “in good faith,” meaning that they do not uphold their end of this implied contract. Frequently, insurance companies will give low-ball estimates of damages to be paid or will deny claims for unknown reasons. When this occurs, insurance companies are considered to be acting in “bad faith.”
Insurance companies are ultimately in the business of making money, despite their many advertisements promising that they will take care of you in the event of an emergency or accident. When they fail to uphold their end of the bargain, you have the right to sue for compensation.
