Insurance Denial Tactics
When an insurance company denies a claim without cause or pressures you to take less than your claim amount, these are Bad Faith tactics. A lawsuit could hold the insurer liable for damages beyond the value of a claim.
Bad Faith Examples
While there are many forms of Bad Faith conduct, some common examples are:
- Denying coverage without an investigation
- Refusing to negotiate with a legitimate claim
- Purposely improperly explaining the law to compromise his or her claim
- Lack of negotiation when liability for coverage is clear
- Misrepresenting the statute of limitations to drop a claim
- Offering a lower amount for the claim to defraud
- Failing to provide a written explanation for denial of a claim
- Withholding pertintent information
- Failure to deny or pay a claim within a reasonable period
