Insurance Bad Faith

Insurance Bad Faith

Homeowners and businesses pay premiums to insurance companies to protect their assets from losses covered under policies from all manner of unexpected events, such as pipe bursts, theft, acts of vandalism and natural disasters. When an insurance company contractually agrees to cover losses and then breaches that agreement, the insurer may be subject for “extracontractual” or “bad faith” liability.

Insurance bad faith can include situations when insurance companies,

  • Fail to promptly and thoroughly investigate a claim
  • Deny coverage based upon an unreasonable interpretation of the policy language
  • Deny coverage on unreasonable or “pretextual” grounds
  • Purposely delays or stalls payments
  • Refuses to pay the full value of the claim
