If you have ever had to file an insurance claim, you know that the process can be frustrating and time-consuming. The last thing anyone wants when seeking compensation for a serious event is for the insurance company to not live up to their end of the deal.
When an insurance company behaves in bad faith, it means that it has not lived up to its obligations outlined in the policy contract. This can include denying a claim without a legitimate reason, delaying or refusing to pay a claim, or trying to settle a claim for less than what is owed. If you find yourself in this situation, it is important to contact an attorney who specializes in bad faith claims and can provide you with a solid legal backup.
When it comes to insurance bad faith claims, having an experienced legal team on your side is key. These claims can be complex and require personalized legal service in order to be successful. At Lehr Law, we have a team of attorneys who are experienced in this area of law and can guide you through the process every step of the way.
How To Prove Bad Faith
Proving bad faith on the part of an insurance company can be tricky. There are a few key things that must be shown in order to make a successful case. Typically, bad faith is proven by demonstrating that the insurance company failed to live up to its obligations to the policyholder. This can include failing to investigate a claim fairly, refusing to pay a valid claim, or delaying payment on a claim without a reasonable explanation.
It is crucial in these situations to be able to thoroughly analyze the legal claims made in your insurance contract and how to properly interpret them. Without professional assistance, your insurance company may be able to take advantage of your lack of in-depth insurance law knowledge. These contracts are often very cleverly developed and require a close eye in order to properly interpret in your best interests.
