Insurance companies are obligated to provide their policyholders with prompt and full payment of an insurance claim. If an insurance company denies or reduces the amount of a claim, it must provide the policyholder with a reason for the claim denial. The failure to do so could give rise to a legal action against your insurance company.
While many insurance companies treat their customers fairly and satisfy their obligations of good faith and fair dealing, some insurance companies do not. For instance, an insurance adjuster may not promptly return your phone calls or the insurance company might delay payment of your insurance claim. If this is the case, you should ask an insurance lawyer about a possible bad faith insurance claim.
