Were You the Victim of Insurance Bad Faith?
Many Florida residents are all-too-familiar with insurance claims, whether they are for property damage from hurricanes, personal injury protection (PIP) claims after a car crash, or others. The insurance process can be a hassle, but claimants can often ultimately receive their settlement payments with the right legal help.
Sometimes, however, insurance companies refuse to pay out on valid claims or cause completely unnecessary delays or complications for claimants. This can constitute insurance bad faith, which is unlawful in Florida. If you believe you might be the victim of insurance bad faith, you should speak with an insurance disputes lawyer in Boca Raton as soon as possible.
Claims for Bad Faith
There are different situations that can lead to bad faith claims, including:
- The insurance company failed to sufficiently investigate your claim
- The company took unreasonably long to pay out on your claim
- The insurer gave you false information or misrepresentations about your policy to minimize payment
- The insurance company denied a valid claim without a satisfactory reason
- A defendant’s insurance company failed to defend the policyholder
Sometimes, insurance adjusters simply make mistakes and the situation might not rise to the level of bad faith. If you are experiencing unreasonable delays or wrongful denials of an insurance claim, it is important to have an experienced lawyer evaluate your situation to determine whether you experienced bad faith. You can also expect the insurance company to deny liability, so you want the right attorney proving your claim and seeking the damages you deserve.
