What is bad faith refusal to pay?
The insurance premiums you pay go toward coverage of potential future losses. When an insurance company denies your claim, their decision must be based in fact and supported by evidence. If the evidence points to a valid claim, their refusal to pay may be seen as bad faith and could be the start of a bad faith insurance claim. Your insurance company may be dealing with you in bad faith if:
- Denying, delaying, or discounting payment without appropriate explanation
- Attempting to settle your claim for an unreasonable amount
- Advising or threatening you to not get an attorney
- Substantially raising the premium or canceling a policy when you’re not at fault
- Misrepresenting the law to benefit the insurance company
Remember, the insurance company is in the business of making money. No matter what their marketing says, they’re in business for them, not for you.
What do I do If my insurance company refuses to pay?
As we always say, “it depends.” The steps you need to take after you learn that the insurance company may be acting in bad faith depend on the claim itself and the type of insurance policy in place. The amount of damages you could recover also vary based on the type of case and its circumstances. And the law itself may dictate the process and timing of a bad faith claim. What we’re saying here is: it’s complicated.
You could have a claim against your own insurance company, or you could have a claim against the negligent driver’s insurance company. Because every case is unique, sitting down to talk with a lawyer can help you get a better idea of strategy and potential outcomes.
We know this is an emotional situation for people. If you’re worried and stressed because you might have a bad faith insurance claim, you don’t have to fight alone. We will help you get back to your life by taking on the insurance company for you.
