Is Your Auto Insurance Company Acting in Bad Faith?

Your auto insurance company is supposed to be there to protect you after an accident. The contract you sign with them is an act of “good faith” and a promise they will do what is right in the event of an auto accident. Insurance companies, as a general rule, deal fairly with their clients and strive to deal with all claims fairly and quickly.

However, sometimes the company will wrongfully deny certain claims and unreasonably withhold the benefits of the policy. This is called “bad faith insurance.”

Some signs your insurance company may be acting in bad faith include:

  • Your insurance fails to investigate a claim thoroughly enough.
  • Your insurance fails to properly reimburse you.
  • Your insurance delays payments for no reason.
  • Your insurance company applies tortured interpretations to the language of your insurance policy.

Any of these examples could be warning signs that your insurance company is acting in bad faith and legal action may need to be taken.
