Recognize bad faith insurance practices

There are many tactics that insurance companies could use to attempt to avoid paying a claim. These are not legal, and they are not fair to consumers.

As someone who has a valid claim to file, you deserve fair treatment from your insurance company. You also need to know when you're not being treated fairly. Being able to recognize when the insurance company is violating your rights is essential so that you can protect yourself and get the coverage and payments you need when you deserve them.

What are some common types of bad faith insurance practices?

You might recognize and be a victim of bad faith insurance practices if your insurance agency:

  • Delays payments on valid claims
  • Ignores your calls, emails and letters about a valid claim
  • Fails to affirm or deny coverage of your claim within a fair amount of time
  • Makes a settlement offer that is not supported by your financial or factual records and is unfairly low
  • Denies payment for valid claims with no reasonable cause
  • Makes overly burdensome requests for documents the support your valid claim
  • Misrepresents the policy or law regarding the policy

These are just a few of the actions that are red flags in a bad faith insurance situation. If any of these happen to you, it's a good idea to discuss your situation with your attorney. Your insurance agency is meant to be there to protect you -- not to take advantage of you when you need help most.

Our site has more on what to do if you've been victimized by your insurance company.
