What Is Bad Faith Insurance?
A promise of good faith and fair dealing is implied in every insurance policy and goes beyond mere payment for losses claimed under the policy. Under California law, when your insurance company breaches its duties under its insurance policy, it may be liable for the tort of bad faith.
Bad faith may include offering less compensation than what a claim is worth, denying a valid claim, delaying payment, requiring an unnecessary amount of paperwork to process a claim, misrepresenting insurance laws, and refusing to provide documentation detailing why a claim was denied. Bad faith insurance is a crime and subject to an investigation from the California Department of Insurance. These insurance lawsuits are extremely complex battles and you should not fight one alone.
