Bad Faith

Bad Faith

Every contract for insurance comes with an implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing. When an insurance company violates this covenant by acting in bad faith, they can be sued for the actual damages caused, such as the payment of benefits under the policy, as well as other harm such as mental anguish and emotional distress. Attorneys’ fees and punitive damages may also be awarded in appropriate cases. Some of the most common types of insurance bad faith include the following when done unreasonably or with bad motives to avoid paying a proper claim:

  • Denial of coverage

  • Only paying partial benefits

  • Undue delay in processing a claim

  • Offering an unreasonably low settlement amount

  • Rescinding or canceling a policy to avoid paying a claim

  • Refusing to defend the insured or accept a reasonable settlement demand

  • Failing to properly investigate a claim
