Do You Have An Insurance Bad Faith Claim?
When your home or commercial or industrial property sustains damage, it causes many problems simultaneously. Where will you live? When will your business be able to open again? How will you pay for the repairs? What if the entire structure was damaged beyond repair?
Your insurance policy is supposed to cover the repairs and related costs, but you may have trouble getting your insurance company to pay out the amount you need. The tactics they may use to avoid paying out claims can include:
- Misrepresenting your policy’s coverage
- Pressuring you not to work with a lawyer
- Denying your claim
- Not paying the full value of your claim
- Changing the terms of the policy after receiving your claim
- Refusing to give you a reason for a denial
- Refusing to communicate with you
These types of issues, and others, may constitute insurance bad faith. If your attorney establishes that the insurance company knowingly acted in bad faith, you may seek attorney’s fees and court costs, interest on payments they delayed and, when appropriate, treble damages on the compensation you should have received. Every case is unique, however, so it is best to discuss your claim with an attorney.
