Proving “Bad Faith”
Collecting evidence that your insurance company acted in bad faith can be challenging. For instance, a disagreement with an adjuster over how much your claim is worth does not necessarily mean that they are acting in bad faith. You must prove that the insurance company failed to pay out valid claims which they were contractually obligated to pay.
Some of the common ways that insurance companies may act in bad faith include:
- Delaying the claims process to avoid paying the subscriber
- Withholding money from the subscriber
- Denying benefits without any corroborating evidence
- Withholding information pertinent to the claim
