What is Insurance Bad Faith?
When insurance companies do not properly defend and compensate their customers in a timely manner, they are acting in bad faith. In trying to protect the insurance company an adjuster can make bad decisions, mistreat or not properly defend the customer. This includes denying a claim or paying well below what the case is worth. Other bad faith claims involve an adjuster who drags the case on longer than needed and causes a customer hardship and undue stress.
If this has happened with your bad faith insurance claim, contact our insurance attorneys at the Denton Law Firm PLLC today at (918) 631-7181 for a FREE initial consultation. We will personally deal with the adjuster and make sure they comply with your insurance policy and the law.
What is a Bad Faith Claim?
An insurance policy is a contract between the insurance company and the insured. A bad faith claim arises and customer or policyholder believes that their claim has not been handled correctly or fairly and that the contract has been violated. At the Denton Law Firm PLLC, our attorneys will aggressively pursue the insurance companies to get them to abide by the contract.
Who can file a Bad Faith Claim?
Unlike a typical personal injury case, a bad faith claim can only be filed by someone who is insured by the insurance company. This means that you can only file a bad faith claim if your homeowner’s claim, auto accident claim or defense of a lawsuit brought by a third party against you was improperly handled by your insurance company. You cannot file a bad faith claim if you have not been paid by the insurance company of a person you sued.
