Signs that an insurance company is acting in bad faith

On Behalf of | Feb 6, 2024 | Bad Faith Insurance |

You’ve consistently paid your insurance premiums, so you expect to receive quick payout of any claim that file so long as that claim is legitimate. Yet, all too often, insurance companies deploy tactics aimed at paying less than what’s owed or delaying the payment deserved. In too many instances, policy holders simply deal with the hand that’s been dealt to them, but you don’t have to do that. Instead, you can take legal action to hold the insurance company’s feet to the fire and recover what you’re owed.

Signs of insurance bad faith

Before taking legal action, though, you need evidence that the insurance company is acting in bad faith. Here are some signs to look for that are indicative that the insurance company is treating you unfairly:

  • The insurance company doesn’t communicate with you despite your efforts to get information from them.
  • Payout of your claim is significantly delayed trying to get you to accept something less than you’re owed.
  • Your claim is denied without any explanation.
  • You’re pressured to accept a settlement that’s less than what your claim is worth.
  • The insurance company changes or even cancels your policy without notice or reason.
  • Insurance representatives threaten you.
  • The investigation into your claim lacked thoroughness.
  • You request documentation from the insurance company, but they deny you access.

If you’ve experienced any of these signs of insurance bad faith, don’t let them slide. Instead, dig deeper into the issue to see if the insurance company is acting in bad faith.
