What Constitutes Insurance Bad Faith?

Insurance bad faith encompasses a wide range of practices, including:

  • Undue delay in paying on a claim
  • Refusal to pay a valid claim
  • Refusal to pay the full value of an insurance claim
  • The use of coercive tactics in settlement negotiations
  • Improper investigation or delayed investigation of an insurance claim
  • Failure to pay for necessary remediation or procedures, including medical procedures
  • Failure to provide adequate legal representation to defend an insurable claim

In order to win a bad faith insurance practices claim, the insured must be able to prove that the insurance company knowingly acted in a way that was immoral, oppressive, unethical or unscrupulous and caused substantial injury to the insured.

We can advise individuals and businesses on the proper way to make insurance claims and how to assert the claims. As experienced business lawyers, we also defend corporate businesses that are facing bad faith insurance claims and provide advice for preventing these claims.
