Insurance Disputes and Bad Faith

California Lawyer for Insurance Disputes and Bad Faith

Is an insurance company delaying or denying payment?

Insurance companies are pleased to sell you health and accident insurance policies and accept your premiums until you need to use the policy. When you need an expensive medical procedure, they start looking for ways to avoid paying your claim to boost their profit margins. This is when insurance disputes and bad faith occur for which they may be sued for damages in court. If you are being subjected to this bad faith, you are urged to contact a California personal injury lawyer experienced in insurance disputes and bad faith.

What is a bad faith insurance claim?

If you have shown you have coverage and yet the insurance company takes these actions, it is considered insurance disputes and bad faith:

  • Multiple examinations: They ask you to appear before their attorney more than once to answer the same questions and provide the same or similar documents. This is just a delaying tactic.
  • Refusal to pay undisputed portions of claim: They refuse to pay the undisputed portion of your claim to pressure you into accepting a reduced amount for the disputed portion.
  • Slow investigation: They fail to promptly and thoroughly investigate your claim or show bias in the investigation to only look for negative evidence.
  • Use of biased experts: They use biased rather than independent experts to evaluate your claim.
  • Extorting waivers of rights: They ask you to waive rights or agree to restrictions not in your insurance contract in return for paying an undisputed portion of the claim.
