Insurance companies like to promote that they are there to serve you, but unfortunately, these large corporations are often just there to serve themselves. You give your hard-earned money to these companies in the form of insurance premiums, and in return you deserve protection and honesty. Insurance bad faith can occur when your insurance company fails to fulfill its obligation to you, the client.Insurance policies, whether for auto or homeowners, can be confusing. Policies are also extensive and use jargon the average person doesn’t see everyday. You will not see “insurance bad faith” defined in any insurance policy. Bad faith arises when an insurance company breaches its implied duty to act in good faith and fair dealing with you. A legitimate denial of coverage under a policy is not necessarily bad faith.
Above are just some examples of what may be considered bad faith on the part of your insurance company. If you suspect your insurance company is not dealing with you in fairness and in good faith, you may have the right to take legal action against them and recover the damages they caused you.To find out more, you should get a copy of your insurance policy and call an experienced insurance bad faith attorney. An attorney will be able to evaluate your claim and advise you of your rights.To discuss your potential case with our skilled team at Scartelli Olszewski, call or message us now.
