Insurance companies employ lawyers to limit their exposure to liability in any claim. These companies can increase their profits by paying as little as possible to those who have been injured. In some cases, an insurance company will deny a claim, despite the fact that the claim is legitimate. If your insurance company wrongfully denies your valid claim or offers you substantially less than you are entitled to, it may be guilty of bad faith conduct.

Bad Faith And The Insurance Industry
Insurance companies do have the right to deny claims. They also have the right to disagree with your assessment of how much compensation you are owed. If you have not spent much time dealing with insurance companies, it can be difficult to know when red tape and frustration rise to the level of bad faith. Insurance companies are notoriously difficult to deal with. That does not mean you have to tolerate unfair or unreasonable conduct.
Our skill and experience allow us to identify when an insurance company is acting in bad faith. There are several things you can look for if you believe you have been a victim of bad faith conduct by your insurer, including:
- No investigation or a cursory investigation
- A lowball offer or undue pressure to settle
- Denial of a claim you believe is legitimate
- Long delay in receiving payments you are owed
- An offer to pay a small portion of the full amount you are owed
