Will Ferguson & Associates: Pros at Stopping the Insurance Denial Con
You paid your insurance premiums. You suffered a personal injury. But your insurance company won't pay the claim. Under the law, that's called bad faith insurance.
Sadly, there is substantial economic incentive for insurance companies to base claims decisions not on what's right but on the bottom line.
What is bad faith insurance?
- 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, homeowner, automobile and accidental death policies, require that the insurer act in good faith. Their failure to do so can lead to a claim by the insured.
The harm bad faith insurance can cause
It's important for you to know that bad acts by an insurance company can expose, you, the insured, to significant financial risk above and beyond policy limits (including seizure of all your assets). Because of this potential harm is so great, courts have allowed punitive damages to be assessed against insurance companies that commit such acts.
