What Is Involved In A Bad Faith Claim?

The insurance companies have a duty to act in good faith when presented with an insurance claim. That essentially means the insurance provider must honor its contractual relationship within the terms of the insurance policy. When terms of the contract are breached, a policyholder may have a bad faith insurance claim. Common issues in bad faith claims include:

  • Unreasonable delays in payment
  • Denied coverage
  • Inadequate or unreasonably delayed investigation of a claim
  • Arbitrary interpretation of policy coverage
  • Refusal to settle third-party claims
  • Refusal to defend
