Insurance policies exist to protect you when facing a catastrophic or life-changing event. Whether you’re involved in a car accident, house fire, burglary, or something else, you should at least expect your insurance company to treat you fairly and impartially. After all, insurance companies are meant to protect your investments and help you in times of need. However, it’s not uncommon for insurance companies to fail to meet their policyholders’ basic duty. It may be in your best interest to file a bad faith insurance claim when this is the case.

What Is Bad Faith Insurance?

“Bad faith insurance” refers to any action taken by an insurance company that doesn’t reflect the coverage you have or the payment you deserve in your situation. This could encompass numerous behaviors, including:

  • Repeated delays of your claim
  • Presenting skewed interpretations of the policy
  • Unfair claim denial
  • Ignoring evidence during an investigation
  • Payment offers lower than you deserve
  • Denying an insurance claim
  • Paying partial claims

Insurers can and should be held legally accountable for bad faith. You’ll need a skilled Albuquerque bad faith insurance lawyer at your side to help fight for your rights, 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’ve been seriously injured and begin to accrue 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. If you believe an insurance company has denied your claim without a basis for the denial, it may be possible to file a lawsuit. However, it’s important to note that an insurance company has the right to deny your claim, but only if the following is true:

  • You’ve violated the terms of your contract
  • The claim you filed is fraudulent
  • Your demand isn’t in accordance with the terms of your policy.

Likewise, you must be able to prove that your insurance company’s conduct was dishonest and egregious to establish a valid bad-faith lawsuit. If you think you may have the right to file a claim, contact our law firm as soon as possible.

At Dominguez Law, we have extensive experience communicating with insurance companies and aggressively seeking the complete coverage they owe you. Before speaking to an insurer yourself, you may want to ask an attorney how to proceed. To avoid making a mistake when talking with the insurance company, wait for the advice of a lawyer who has extensive experience with these kinds of cases.
