What is an insurance bad faith claim?

Under the law, insurers have a responsibility to act in good faith towards their customers. This means giving policyholders’ claims the reasonable time and attention they deserve, as well as providing the full payout outlined in their policies. Insurers act in “bad faith” when they wrongfully deny, delay, or underpay on claims. In these situations, policyholders who have been treated improperly by their insurance providers can file bad faith insurance claims to fight for the benefits they are owed.

Often, victims of insurance bad faith need legal help to ensure that they receive the fair treatment they deserve. If you would like to learn more about insurance bad faith, please contact a lawyer at Jessica Rutzick & Associates today by calling (307) 733-8140.
