You Have Legal Options If Your Insurer Is Treating Your Claim Unfairly
Insurance companies may have legitimate requests for information about your disability or medical condition. In some cases they need more information in order to approve a claim. But when insurance companies deny a valid claim without cause, you may be successful in a lawsuit alleging bad faith against your insurer.
Under state law, insurers must act in good faith to uphold their end of the bargain when deciding when and what time to pay on a claim. If an insurer fails to live up to this standard, the insurer may owe you more than what was originally covered under the policy.
Bad faith actions by insurance companies include:
- Making unreasonable and never-ending requests for more information
- Delaying paying on a valid claim or otherwise
- Failing to investigate a claim
- Twisting policy language interpretation in order to justify a denial
