What Is Bad Faith Insurance?

"Bad faith insurance" refers to any action taken by an insurance company that does not reflect the coverage you have or the payment you deserve in your situation.

This could encompass numerous behaviors, but some of the most common include:

  • Repeated delays of your claim
  • Unfair claim denial
  • Payment offers lower than you deserve

Insurers can and should be held legally accountable for bad faith, but you will need a skilled lawyer at your side to do so, as insurance companies are skilled at using every possible piece of evidence to avoid the repercussions of their actions.

Should You Speak To The Insurance Company?

When you have been seriously injured and start accruing medical costs, getting insurance payments is probably a high priority. However, you need to be sure you can successfully receive these payments or you could create an even worse financial situation for yourself later.

At Dominguez Law, we have extensive experience communicating with insurance companies and aggressively seeking the full coverage they owe you. Before speaking to an insurer yourself, you may want to ask an attorney how to proceed. It is often best for the attorney to speak with the insurer, not you.
