As an insurer, you have the duty to provide your services with the utmost professionalism and diligence. Your policyholders depend on your hard work and respect to fulfill every motion in their contracts.
Unfortunately, this provides a window of opportunity for some policyholders to make questionable and/or fraudulent claims against your insurance company.
A policyholder can file a bad faith claim against you if they feel you did not act accordingly and failed to fulfill your part of an insurance contract. A fraudulent bad faith claim is unfair to you and other honest policyholders, but don’t panic, legal assistance is available to help you deal with your lawsuit.
What Makes a Bad Faith Claim?
Our nation has seen a high amount of bad faith claims in recent times and the trend seems to be picking up steam. A bad faith claim is highly dangerous for your company’s reputation and financial stability. Paying large amounts of money to settle a lawsuit can cause a serious financial strain for you and can force you to increase the prices of insurance for other policyholders. A bad faith lawsuit generally involves accusations of:
- Improper handling of investigations of policyholder’s damage
- Delayed payout of benefits
- Refusal to pay all the benefits in a contract
- Refusal to defend a lawsuit
- Making improper interpretations of an insurance policy
- Threatening the policyholder
- Seek Protection
