What to do when your insurance company is acting in bad faith
You may pay for insurance premiums for years or even decades. If you are in a car accident, you should expect your insurance company to respond and pay the benefits outlined in your policy. In fact, your insurance company is obligated to handle your claim with a reasonable degree of efficiency and ethical conduct. What sometimes happens, however, is that the insurance company acts in "bad faith." When this happens, the company has an obligation to pay the amount owed under the contract as well as other damages it may have caused, including emotional damages suffered by the policyholder.
Your insurance company must act in good faith, but unfortunately, big companies will put profit before people and fail to treat their policyholders fairly. However, actually proving that an insurance company is acting in bad faith can be very challenging. That's because many insurance companies deny behaving this way, claiming that they're doing everything they can to help you obtain the financial compensation you rightfully deserve.
If you have a dispute with an insurance company that you feel is exceedingly confrontational, contact Gonzalez & Cartwright, P.A., today. We may be able to demonstrate that your insurer is liable for breach of contract, for relying on unfair claims settlement practices, or for violating the late payment statute.
