You may have an insurance bad faith claim
You paid your insurance premiums, and now that you've suffered a personal injury, you expect your insurance company to reimburse you.
Sounds straight-forward enough, but it’s not uncommon for an insurer to decline to pay for a covered injury. It happens more often than you might think. If you believe your insurance company is acting in bad faith, get in touch with Will Ferguson & Associates.
What is Bad Faith Insurance?
When an insured customer's claim is wrongfully denied by the insurer, it is considered bad faith. Examples include:
- Failure to promptly or thoroughly investigate a claim
- Inadequate claims processing
- Unreasonable denial of payment
- Delay in payment
- Failure to settle an underlying suit against the insured
- Failure to defend a suit against the insured
All types of insurance policies, including disability, life, homeowners, automobile and accidental death policies, require that the insurer act in good faith. In other words, they are supposed to deal with you honestly and fairly.
But all too often, especially in the corporate world, there is substantial economic incentive for insurers to act otherwise — and decisions sometimes are driven not by what's the right thing to do, but by the bottom line.
Because bad faith by an insurance company can expose you, the insured, to significant financial risk above and beyond policy limits (including seizure of all your assets), courts and the Legislature have allowed punitive damages to be assessed against insurance companies that commit acts of bad faith.
At Will Ferguson and Associates, we believe our clients should be dealt with in good faith.
