When an insurance company fails to meet its requirements under its agreement with a customer, the client can file a bad faith lawsuit. Essentially, a bad faith claim asserts that the insurance company made a promise to the client without the intention of ever honoring it. State and federal laws provide an avenue for an aggrieved client to sue the insurance company to recover financial damages.

Every bad faith insurance dispute requires a lawyer to prove two main points. If an attorney can establish these two factors, their clients will win their case.
First, the plaintiff needs to prove that the defendant didn’t provide benefits included in the insurance agreement. To do this, they’ll need to assess their client’s insurance contract. If the contract doesn’t expressly grant a benefit, there is no bad faith.
Additionally, the plaintiff needs to establish that the insurance provider acted unreasonably. Some factors to consider include:
If the insurance company never explained why they denied the claim.
Whether the provider was honest in their dealings with the plaintiff.
The amount of time the insurance provider required to process the claim.
If you’re unsure whether your claim meets these prerequisites, don’t worry. An attorney will be able to help you apply these insurance law standards to your bad faith claim.
