Whether the damage you sustained is the result of a vehicle accident, hurricane, flood, fire or other occurrence, all applicable insurance carriers must act in good faith when assessing your damages and making a monetary tender to compensate you for damages covered by the policy. When an insurance company fails to act in good faith, you may have a bad faith claim in which you may be entitled to recover for your damages as well as penalties and attorney’s fees against the insurance company.
Insurance companies can act in bad faith in a number of ways, including, but not limited to the following:
Refusal to pay a claim without a reasonable basis;
Failure to timely settle a claim;
Failure to properly investigate a claim in a timely manner;
Failure to defend, indemnify, or settle a claim within the policy limits without a reasonable basis;
Failure to disclose policy limits and explain applicable policy provisions or exclusions.
