Insurance Bad Faith, what is that?
Every insurance contract implies that all parties will act in good faith and deal fairly. If an insurance company delays or denies claims and benefits, it may be liable to the policyholder for insurance bad faith. Insurance bad faith can occur in several ways. There are times when it is reasonable for an insurance company to determine coverage under an insured’s policy and evaluate a particular claim. But it is unreasonable for a company to cause an unnecessary delay in processing a claim, attempt to settle a claim for less than it’s worth, or to deny a claim when it is covered under the insurance policy. When an insurance company acts in bad faith, it may be held accountable for the damages and harm caused.
