Texas Insurance Bad Faith Lawyer
Expert Representation Backed By Decades Of Experience
When an insurance company denies a claim based on an accident, or personal injury, the reason may be evident. But in other cases, the reasons for denying a policyholder’s claim may be non-existent, unjustified, or made without proper notice. When an insurance carrier knowingly delays the payment of benefits, intentionally undervalues a settlement, or denies a legitimate claim for compensation, they are acting in bad faith-which is a violation of the policyholder’s rights.
Common Examples Of Insurance Bad Faith
“Insurance bad faith” refers to a claim or lawsuit alleging that an insurance company has violated its duty of good faith and fair dealing. Whether an insurer has failed to act reasonably and fairly or it has violated specific laws regarding the payment of a claim, there are several ways that an insurance company can act in bad faith while handling a policyholder’s legitimate claim for compensation.
Some of the most common examples of insurance bad faith include:
- Failing to process a legitimate claim in a prompt and timely manner
- Asserting that a legitimate claim is not covered by the insurance policy
- Intentionally undervaluing a legitimate claim for insurance benefits
- Failing to comply with specific state laws when processing a claim
- Wrongfully delaying, denying, or obstructing a legitimate claim
