Filing a policy claim with your insurance company may be a difficult and intimidating process. Some clients feel helpless when they believe a massive corporation refuses to pay on a claim, thinking there is no way to contest it. It has been charged that insurance companies try to pay as little as possible. However, insurance companies must obey the law like everyone else. It is important to know your rights and their obligations.
Good Faith and Fair Dealing
All insurance policies contain an implied obligation for the insurance company to render “good faith and fair dealing” towards its insured. This means an insurance company is required to do a thorough investigation on all of your claims and consider all the reasons that support them.
Bad Faith and Unfair Dealing
When an insurance company fails to act in an honest and fair dealing towards a policyholder, under Florida law this company has violated the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing.
Most states, including Florida, have adopted the Unfair Claim Settlement Practices Act, which protects the rights of insured policyholders.
Insurance Bad Faith behavior includes:
- Misleading or deceiving a policyholder
- Failure to investigate a claim in a proper manner
- Withholding benefits without cause
- Delaying claim payment unreasonable length of time
- Denying coverage
- Denying payment on claims
- Underpaying claims
- Undervaluing a claim
- Unfairly refusing to settle and/or reimburse claims
- Abusive or unreasonable claims process
- Cancellation of insurance policy unjustly
- Conscious wrongdoing
If an insurance company has unfairly denied payment on your claim or acted in bad faith, our insurance trial lawyers can help you determine the best course of action for recovering your fair compensation.
In some cases, additional compensation may be awarded to cover additional damages and losses created by the breach of the contract and the necessity for taking legal action. While some law firms are hesitant to confront large insurance companies, Chadwick and Associates insurance trial attorneys have the experience to successfully represent you in this type of case.
