home destroyed by a hurricanePeople and companies purchase insurance in order to safeguard against significant financial loss in the event of an accident or other unfortunate event. Insurance companies offer a service that promises reimbursement—under specified terms—in the event of a particular loss or types of losses. By putting our faith—and money—into insurance, we expect that our insurer will look out for our best interests in our time of need.

Insurance Companies Must Act in Good Faith

Unfortunately, insurance companies do not always act in good faith, as they are bound to do under the law. They should not take your hard earned premium dollar and then deny your claim.

When an insurance company acts in bad faith, they can be held liable for all ensuing damages. Bad faith, concerning insurance coverage issues, can involve unreasonably denying claims, failure to respond to an insured’s claim in a timely manner and much more.

Insurance claims can involve health insurance, life insurance, homeowners insurance and disability insurance where the insurance company wrongfully denies your claim

Insurance coverage denial can occur with both first and third party claims.

• First party claim – involves a lawsuit against an insurance company if they refuse to settle the claim of a policyholder

• Third party claim – occurs when an insurance company refuses to defend a suit against its insured or denies coverage to its insured
